And today’s ThisWeek-tipped, LDN-based events are…

The Adventures Of The Bearded Lady | Camden People’s Theatre | 4-5 Apr
This sounds interesting. This bearded lady was born with full head of hair on her chin but sadly it fell out at the onset of puberty, so when she runs away to the circus, how will she survive with no beard? “So begins a life of deception, deviance, mischieviance, fleeing, flaying, falling and howling at the moon. Having run away so many times that she arrives back at the beginning, she discovers new resolve to defy the inanity of a world that asks people to hide or change who they are.” See, told you it sounds interesting. See this page here for info.

Staged | Jacksons Lane | 4-7 Apr (pictured)
Hurrah, CircusFest 2018 has begun, and this show is part of it, so that’s great news for all you fans of circus. Also good for those of you who aren’t really sure whether or not you like circus because there’s a whole load of events you can immerse yourself in, and find out. Anyway, here you are, here’s our first tip from it: experimental circus collective Circumference perform their latest piece, which features a cast of three, performing on a seemingly precarious aerial platform. Details here.

Black | Battersea Arts Centre | 3-7 Apr
“Nikki doesn’t think that her Dad is a racist, he just cares deeply about his community. But when a Zimbabwean family move in over the road, the dog won’t stop barking, the local kids start lobbing stones and her Dad starts laying down the law.” 20 Stories High present this rather provocative sounding show – by award-winning writer Keith Saha – which explores racial tensions at play in the UK today. Head this way for more.
