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

Coming Clean – Life As A Naked House Cleaner | Clerkenwell | 6 Apr (pictured)
This is interesting, not least because the performance takes place in a cosy venue (you know, like someone’s nice house) but you won’t know exactly where until the day before or something like that. Anyway, it’s an immersive experience, written and performed by Ethan Mechare, who tells stories of, as you might expect, life as a naked house cleaner. That said, I know that there is far more to it than that: as well as being funny, the show raises interesting questions about sexual desire and fantasy. Book tickets here, and find loads of info about the show here.

Bobby Mair – Loudly Insecure | Soho Theatre | 5-7 Apr
“30 years ago, Bobby was put up for adoption and now he’s tracking down his birth family one by one. Saying his search has hit a couple of snags would be an understatement and he still has relatives out there who continue to elude him – except for Justin Bieber.” TV face Bobby Mair fills you in on the twists and turns of finding his various blood relations, see this page here for info.

Who Do You Think You Are? Barbara Brownskirt | Camden People’s Theatre | 6-7 Apr
Karen McLeod presents this poetry comedy show charting the highs and lows of in the life of Barbara Brownskirt, an unsuccessful lesbian poet who unknowingly “takes the language of feminism and lesbian cliché and creates comedy and pathos”. Expect themes of loneliness, the Dunning-Kruger effect in art, Freudian mother love, and the love of Judi Dench. See the venue website here for more.
