Three To See on 5 Dec: Ajax, Tom Goodliffe’s Coffee Run, Beans

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

Ajax | The Space | 5-10 Dec
The classic play by Sophocles, staged using a modern translation, and featuring an all-female cast. Celebrated warrior Ajax wakes after a night of violent hallucinations to find her friends, lover, and child cowering from her in fear and shame, exhibiting symptoms we’d now associate with PTSD, in a story of honour, death, trauma, and the dehumanizing nature of politics and war.

Tom Goodliffe’s Coffee Run | Museum Of Comedy | 5 Dec (pictured)
The excellent Tom Goodliffe, whom we doth love here at TW towers, brings to Museum Of Comedy the show he performed in Edinburgh this summer, delighting many, including our own reviewer, with his tale of drinking far too much coffee in too many locations over a short time period. Expect something funny as well as informative that you don’t have to be a coffee lover to enjoy. See this page here for details.

Beans | Canal Cafe Theatre | 6-30 Dec
Another pantomime for you now (we’ve tipped a few over the last week or two) but this one is not for the children, it’s just for you grown-ups. As you might expect from the title, it’s ‘Jack And The Beanstalk’ with a twist, and it’s written by the really brilliant Matthew Floyd Jones (aka Mannish), so I anticipate something fabulously entertaining, especially given its NewsRevue alumnae-filled cast. Hurrah, book here.
