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

The One | Soho Theatre | 5 Jul-25 Aug
“Harry and Jo are up all night drawing the battle lines of their relationship with sex, violence and Wotsits. A viciously funny and daring play, The One invites you into the world of a couple trapped in a destructive and violent cycle of love and lust.” A return for Vicky Jones’ award-winning 2013 play, featuring a cast of rather familiar faces, from the team behind ‘Fleabag’ and ‘Touch’. So yes, as you can imagine, tickets are going quickly. Attempt to get yours here.

Other People’s Teeth | Old Red Lion Theatre | 4-5 Jul
Definitely definitely definitely Edfringe preview season now in London, and lots of reasons to take them in. Perhaps you are not going to Edinburgh. Perhaps you are, but don’t think you’ll have time to see everything you’d like to see. Anyway, this looks interesting – a romantic crime thriller: “A hitwoman is trying to reconcile these two aspects of her life. Just starting out in a new profession, she craves the respect of her experienced partner in crime. But when she meets someone who she thinks might be the one, will everything have to change?” Click here for more.

And talking of Edinburgh Fringe previews, for yes we were, here’s another, from one of our favourites. “The sketches are well written and excellently executed, and the pair create characters who are all entertaining to watch”, said one of our reviewers of this excellent double act. “extremely entertaining and very funny”, she added. “endless comic energy” said another. “the skits work to hilarious effect” said a third. All good reasons to head this way for all the details.
