And today’s ThisWeek-tipped, LDN-based events are…
COMEDY: Lie Back And Think Of England | The Vaults | 4-8 Feb
A fast-pased physical thrill-ride into ultra-shy supply teacher Ms Got Told’s surreal ‘sex ed’ seminar, ‘Lie Back…’ finds its writer and star Rachel Lincoln using props and flip charts to teach her class about adolescence, contraception and ‘the act itself’ in suitably awkward style. Details and tickets here.
MUSIC: Luke Haines | Islington Assembly Hall | 4 Feb (pictured)
In-your-face punk figurehead Luke Haines, the flighty star of political bands The Auteurs, Baader Meinhof and Black Box Recorder, replays his most recent LP, last year’s ‘New York In The 70s’, as well as earlier sign-offs. Details and tickets here.
THEATRE: The Singing Stones | Arcola Theatre | 4-28 Feb
Celebrated playwright/director Kay Adshead is in the driving seat for this triad of short plays, all looking at 2011’s Arab Spring from the side of the women involved; from the heroines of Tahrir Square, to Kurdistan’s female fighting forces, to a band of quarrelling artists. Details and tickets here.
