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

Borders And Games | Arcola Theatre | 4-22 Dec
This is not – I repeat not – a double bill, this is two separate shows, but they are both acclaimed plays by Henry Naylor, and they are both running for the same dates. And they are on one after the other, so quite frankly, you are at liberty to make this your own double bill, simply by buying tickets for both, at a discount, on the same night. Or, you know, you could spread it over two nights, if you’d rather. See this page here for Borders, and this page here for Games.

Knitmas – A Winter Yarn | Greenwich Theatre | 4-30 Dec
“LongSleeves is a jumper. His jumpery arms aren’t the right size and they aren’t the same length. One Christmas he was unwrapped, thrown aside and forgotten and he’s been alone ever since. Every Christmas he decorates a tree in the forest of Odds and Bods but this year, maybe he won’t have to do it alone…” Yay, here’s a lovely children’s show for your lovely children, from the lovely and talented outfit SharkLegs. See this page here for more.

Polyester | Camden People’s Theatre | 4-5 Dec
Emily Souter Johnson is the creator of this show that blends sing-a-longs, stories, laughter and tears, and promises to be an honest and moving show about an Irish family. “What do a measuring tape, a priest with a clamped car and a polyester frill have in common? They all mean something to Emily. Follow her on a heart-warming story of love and laughter to find out what that is. She will take you on a journey back to Dublin, back in time, to the week her father died. In her own words; “some of the most fun 5 days of her life”. All the details are right about here.
