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

Secrets Of The Bluestockings | Tara Theatre | 9 May
“Since the eighteenth century, the Bluestocking Society has run a top secret female resistance movement. Join three undercover members in an all singing, all dancing cabaret – an alternative history of literary ladies, derring do, and dangerous wandering wombs…” Another pick from Tara Theatre’s ‘I’ll Say It Again!’ season, and also under the umbrella of Wandsworth Fringe, this show stars a TW favourite of longstanding, Tricity Vogue. Details here.

A Festival Of Korean Dance | The Place | 9,12+16 May (pictured)
Well, as you have surely divined from the above heading, this is a short festival of Korean dance, and it looks like we can expect quite a diversity of styles on display, from the traditional and classical to the modern and contemporary. Today you can see ‘Immixture’ by Korea National Contemporary Dance Company, more info about that here, but have a look at this page also, for links to the other events.

Engine Brake | New Diorama | 8-12 May
“An English man and an Indian woman create a dazzling car ad campaign together, navigating questions of growth, progress, and the dreams that connect us.” Another great looking show from The Plasticine Men, who are favourites of ours. So much so that we gave them a TW Editors’ Award a few years back. Actually, it’s quite a few more years back than I’d realised and I feel old now, so, enough. So just go and book your tickets here, you won’t regret it.
