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

The Bearpit | Camden People’s Theatre | 8-9 Dec (pictured)
“Publicly Flora and Nic are the perfect couple. Privately, they haven’t spoken to each other in months. As the glaciers melt and the rain begins to fall, they’ve got one night to settle the scores. One of them is going to crack.” This story of a crumbling relationship appears to be a metaphor for the state of the UK, polarised by economic, geographical and social divides. Should be interesting, see this page here for info and to book.

A Night Of Small Things | Old Red Lion Theatre | 7-9 Dec
Small Things Theatre presents its fifth ‘Night Of Small Things’, a variety night offering a showcase for up and coming poets, playwrights, performers, musicians and comedians. Expect a high quality pot-pourri of “stand ups, intimate musical sets, pint sized sections of poetry and short gems of theatrical brilliance”. Just my dab, and I bet you’ll be interested too, see this page here for more.

Rob Kemp – The Elvis Dead | Soho Theatre | dates eclectic
It’s been on since mid-November so you might have seen it already, but if you haven’t, it’s time. This Edinburgh Comedy Award newcomer nominated show was a bit of a hit up at the Edinburgh Festival this summer and no wonder, as it’s the sort of weird and wonderful concept that tends to go down a storm come Fringe-time. In brief: it’s a solo telling of eighties horror film ‘The Evil Dead II’, set to songs by Elvis Presley. Yes, that’s right, you know you want to, step right this way.
