The Enchanted | The Bunker | 6-17 Jun (pictured)
This was a bit of a hit at last year’s Edinburgh Festival Fringe, an acclaimed adaptation of the award-winning novel of the same name by Rene Denfeld. Set on death row, ‘The Enchanted’ depicts men sitting in isolated dungeons awaiting their execution whilst an investigator works tirelessly to try to save them, and reflects on evil, punishment, clemency and redemption through performance, puppetry, choreography and sound.

Holy Crap | King’s Head Theatre | 7 Jun-8 Jul
If you fancy seeing a sacrilegious music comedy any time soon (and frankly, who doesn’t?) then this is the show for you. It’s about an American evangelical preacher, who comes over to the UK to start a pay-to-view subscription religious channel and ends up doing all manner of naughty things – like showing hardcore porn – to save the channel from disaster. To book your tickets, head right this way.

Incident At Vichy | King’s Head Theatre | 7-25 Jun
And look, another show at The King’s Head, this time Phil Willmott’s critically acclaimed production of Arthur Miller’s ‘Incident at Vichy’, which was previously staged at The Finborough in 2016. It’s 1942 and in a police station in Vichy nine men and a boy have are being questioned, and have no idea why, in this fascinating exploration of how a regime like that operated by the Nazis was able to succeed.
