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

Big Foot | Tara Theatre | 1-4 Nov (pictured)
I was probably drawn to this because I have big feet (don’t mock, being oversized can be a life-defining sorta thing) but once I read the details I thought it sounded great. A coming of age tale, the story of a south London teenager dealing with the terminal illness of his mother alongside all that adolescence entails, infused with Guyanese folk stories and grime. See this page here for more info.

The Trap | Omnibus Theatre | 31 Oct-19 Nov
“Tom and Clem are deep in debt. Alan, Tom’s boss, owes big bucks. Meryl, Alan’s manager, is mortgaged to the hilt. When The Debt Duck’s owner liquidates the company and retires to his luxury chalet, Tom, Clem, Alan and Meryl each decide to crack the safe, steal some cash and put an end to their financial woes.” A comedy set in the world of payday loans, about the financial perils of a capitalist world. Head this way for details.

Archie Maddocks – Illuminarchie | Soho Theatre | 1 Nov
The latest show from Archie Maddocks, who has won much acclaim and accolades for his conversational, storytelling style of comedy (and did you know, he’s also a playwright?). Anyway, here he is, with a set about “how he wishes someone would take control of his life so he didn’t have to, an accidentally racist girlfriend and a incident on a Mexican pyramid”.
