Hopelessly Devoted

TODAY IN LONDON, TW’s tipped events feature drama’s woman-of-the-hour Kate Tempest, sketch addicts The Pin, John Finnemore and Staple/Face, and dark rock romantics Howling Bells…

COMEDY: Stop Trying To Make Sketch Happen feat The Pin/Catriona Knox/John Finnemore, Canal Cafe Theatre, 7 Apr
Bizarre skit-master John-Luke Roberts MCs this Easter edition of the negligibly ‘Mean Girls’-inspired ‘STTMSH’,  which features endearing fresh(ish) faces Staple/Face, wild sketch trio The Pin, character comedian Catriona Knox, and John Finnemore, creator of BBC Radio 4’s ‘Cabin Pressure’ amongst many other things. Details and tickets here.

MUSIC: Howling Bells, Oslo Hackney, 7 Apr
Sinuous-but-melodious London indie outfit Howling Bells show off the sound of ‘Heartstrings’, their new LP, in the midst of a UK tour. Details and tickets here.

THEATRE: Hopelessly Devoted, Tricycle Theatre, 7-19 Apr (pictured)
Theatrical-revelation-of-the-year Kate Tempest’s seemingly never-ending creative reserve yields what is, apparently, an ‘incendiary new play’, in which a girl freshly released from prison, Chess, embarks on a singing career, only to find her dark past still plagues her. Details and tickets here.
