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

Vessel | Battersea Arts Centre | 6-24 Nov (pictured)
“Vessel is about how we gain and maintain stability in the unstable world of contested narratives, alternative facts and irreversible consequences. The text, offered through a polyphony of four diverse voices, provokes contemplation of agency, privilege and representation by placing the domestic within the global and the private within the collective.” Fascinating sounding piece from the much acclaimed Sue MacLaine. See the venue website here for details.

No Direction Home – Refuge Woman | Camden People’s Theatre | 6-10 Nov
A spoken word performance inspired by real life events, which examines government cuts to domestic violence services, life in refuges and the way the media portrays working class women. Cash is a self-confessed “refuge connoisseur” who knows which refuges have the best counsellors, and clothing donations and which ones are closest to the best all you can eat buffets. “6 years, 13 refuges, 12 productions of the Vagina Monologues – because if you live in a women’s refuge you will be invited to see the Vagina Monologues. And it will star Linda Robson.” Info here.

The Pit And The Pendulum | Omnibus Theatre | 6-24 Nov
“A political prisoner wakes in a pitch-black cell, unable to see what terror hides in the darkness. As tension and fear escalate, the chances of survival grow slim.” A new adaptation of Edgar Allen Poe’s classic tale, a one man show offering an immersive experience and an exploration of sensory deprivation and isolation. Head this way for more.
