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

COMEDY: Rhys James Begins | Soho Theatre | 9-14 Feb (pictures)
Fated to hit the big time any time soon, it’s so-called ‘pointy debutant’ Rhys James, who in this, his first show of real significance, will tell jokes, recite rhymes that are relevant to his life, and then leave. The whole thing lasts around an hour, during which time RJ promised he won’t check at his Twitter feed once. Details and tickets here.

THEATRE: Boa | Trafalgar Studios | until 7 Mar
Real-life marrieds Dame Harriet Walter and Guy Paul star in this strictly limited stretch of Clara Brennan’s ‘Boa’, the tender yet acerbic story of a ‘lifetime in love’ for its main characters, Belinda and Louis. Details and tickets here.

THEATRE: How To Hold Your Breath | Royal Court Theatre | until 21 Mar
The brilliant Maxine Peake and Christine Bottomley play sisters Dana and Jasmine, who discover the real cost of principles in Zinnie Harris’ ‘How To Hold Your Breath’, a darkened window into how we live now. Details and tickets here.
