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

Queen Of Carnage | The Space | 11-15 Apr
It’s a live art adaptation of Purcell’s ‘Dido and Aeneas’ that is based on the original score and narrative but adds other elements of performance, opera, digital imagery and visual art. It aims to explore the boundaries of morality and love through gender non norms, and offers a bit of a twist on the well worn tale. I must say, I am fairly intrigued. For more information, see the venue website here.

Hervé | Tristan Bates Theatre | 11-12 Apr (pictured)
This is on as part of Tristan Bates Theatre’s First Festival, which is all about solo performance, and here at TW HQ, it has to be said, we are also all about the solo performance. We love one-person shows. And we know for sure that this will be super, because we saw it a few years ago when it was on at the Edinburgh Festival, and we were blown away by Hervé Goffings’ beautiful performance. See this page here for more.

Shit Faced Shakespeare – Much Ado About Nothing | Leicester Square Theatre | 11 Apr-16 Sep
If you’ve not seen Shit Faced Shakespeare in action yet, then I will hasten to explain, that yes, what you are assuming is in fact, correct: Shit Faced Shakespeare perform Shakespeare plays with one cast member completely blottoed. Is that a word? Well I suppose their word is “shit-faced” so lets go with that. Luckily, the rest of the cast will be sober in control of the ship. Click here for details.
