Immigrant Diaries: Sajeela Kershi and guests | Leicester Square Theatre | 3 Dec (pictures)
Given all the anti-immigrant/refugee rhetoric I keep hearing people spout, it will be a welcome change to hear funny tales from the immigrant/refugee perspective round at Sajeela Kershi’s regular comedy storytelling show ‘Immigrant Diaries’. If you can’t make this one, never fear, there’s another in January, but you’ll be missing the chance to see actress and producer Shobu Kapoor, stand-up and actor Inder Manocha, and comedian and writer Dave Cohen. See this page here for more info and to book.
Rapunzel | Park Theatre | 3 Dec-2 Jan
‘Tis verily the season for family shows, though I hasten to add that you don’t need to be a family to go and see this. You are welcome to attend all by yourself, should you wish. I might wish it. I like going to the theatre on my own. But, enough of what I like doing, and back to Park Theatre’s annual pantomime, which this year is ‘Rapunzel’. It’s from the creative pairing of Jez Bond and Mark Cameron, and if it’s anything like their 2014 production of ‘Jack and The Beanstalk’, it’ll be a quirky and original adaptation of the well loved tale.
