A European premiere from acclaimed American playwright Halley Feiffer, starring TW Editors’ Award winner and general all round TW favourite Cariad Lloyd. “Karla, a foul-mouthed twenty-something comedian, and Don, a middle-aged man embroiled in a nasty divorce, are brought together unexpectedly when their cancer-stricken mothers become roommates in the hospital. 

Together, this unlikely duo must negotiate some of life’s biggest challenges… while making some of the world’s most inappropriate jokes.” Details here.

The Missing Light | Stratford Circus Arts Centre | 6 Oct
“When Warple moves into his new house by the seaside, he discovers his neighbour, Hilda, looking out towards the horizon each night, searching for a glimpse of her long-lost husband. When loneliness, curiosity and a far-off flickering light brings them together, the two elderly friends embark on a surprising journey to reconcile their pasts and find what might lie within their futures.” A blend of puppetry, film, music and live animation that might be a good family outing, as it’s recommended for 7+. See the venue website here for more.

Dice Festival | Camden People’s Theatre | 6-7 Oct
An artist-led festival of chance, at which you will have no idea what you are about to see, featuring live art and experimental performance from a range different artists across over the course of two nights: expect live art, performance art, cabaret, clowning and storytelling, though not necessarily in that order. Each night’s entertainment features six acts, but when and if each act will perform is determined by by the dice roll. See this page here for all the info.
