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

Christopher Bliss – Writing Songs | Soho Theatre | 3-7 Jul
Rob Carter’s excellent comic creation Christopher Bliss heads to Soho Theatre, and if he’s something you haven’t yet encountered, then maybe it’s time you did…? “Christopher Bliss writes two to three novels a day. He’s fairly well known amongst his family and friends, and he’s pretty sure he’s the best writer in his village.” Head this way to book your tickets.

The Economy Of Ecology | New Diorama | 4 Jul
“Travelling on a crowded plane, Steve feels dislocated and alone. In a world of touch screens and social robots, he has lost the ability to make meaningful bonds with other people. In a forest thousands of miles away, a sapling pokes its head through the leafy forest floor. Beneath the soil, its roots begin to scramble for the one thing that guarantees its survival – a connection.” The last of our Incoming Festival picks, see the venue website here for more.

Beautiful Thing | Thamesmead | 3-7 Jul
Jonathan Harvey’s well regarded 1993 piece about gay teens gets an airing, and is performed in the original South Thamesmead locations that the play, and the 1996 film adaptation, are set in. It sounds fab: “The new dance-theatre production, capturing the urban realism and fairytale fantasy of Harvey’s script, will feature stunning digital projections by NOVAK, new music by Roma Yagnik and a community chorus”.
