Relentless Unstoppable Human Machine | Roundhouse | 3-15 Apr
I think this show from Pirates Of The Carabina could probably be regarded as the flagship show from the ongoing CircusFest 2018. Performed using vertical-swinging trapeze, never-ending ropes, a spinning carousel and a “very temperamental” staircase. it follows two neighbours as they go about their misadventures over the course of a day and make surprising discoveries about the world and each other. Expect something playful, funny and exhilarating, see this page here for more.

Plastic | Old Red Lion Theatre | 3-21 Apr (pictured)
“Kev used to have a girlfriend called Lisa, she wore a fitted blazer and reebok classics, lit up the school yard. Kev used to be the captain of the school football team. Scored the winner in the All-Essex schools cup final. Ben used to get beaten up most days. He stole money from his mum’s purse to pay off ‘Wicksy’. Now he’s an accountant. But Ben always had Jack. His loyal, unbreakable mate Jack. Adults are the kids that survive school right? And what if some kids don’t?” You’re probably already planning to see this, after reading our recent interview with the show’s director Josh Roche. But just a reminder, info here.

Morgan & West – More Magic For Kids | The Albany | 7 Apr
Hurrah, the always brilliant Morgan & West are doing some child-focused trickery at The Albany, which is great, because it’s still the school holidays and there’s plenty of child-time to fill. That said, I’d recommend the duo’s children’s shows to anyone, child or not, they are that entertaining. But yes, you make a good argument for the fact that I should let the kids have this one.
