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

Das Fest | Vault Festival | 28 Feb-4 Mar
Theatrical illusionist Philipp Oberlohr (‘Austria’s Derren Brown’) presents this sequel to previous, interactive show ‘Das Spiel’, which won the People’s Choice Award at Vault in 2016. It’s a mind-reading show, yes, but it will also include storytelling, live art, clowning, and physical theatre, so just expect an all-round super-absorbing and entertaining experience. Find all the details right about here.

The Game Of Love And Chai | Tara Theatre | 28 Feb-4 Mar (pictured)
“Kamala wants her daughter Rani to marry successful but emotionally awkward businessman Raj. Rani bristles at going down the conventional route and arranges a test for Raj. She convinces her cousin Sita to swap places and pretend to be the suitable bride – unaware that Raj has come up with the same scheme with his driver, Nitin!” An updated version of Pierre de Marivaux’s eighteenth century romantic comedy, focusing on a modern Asian family in the UK. Looks like tickets are selling quickly, so head this way to book ASAP.

Father Of Lies | Vault Festival | 28 Feb-4 Mar
And another show from Vault Festival (well, there’s too much good stuff on, we just can’t resist) this time a ‘true crime’ themed piece that tells the the chilling tale behind a mysterious, unsolved murder in West Germany in 1973 and promises a “thrilling, twisting tale of haunted priests, jealous widowers and satanic cults”. Yikes, but yes, go on then. More information on the festival website here.
