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

Fauna | Jacksons Lane | 11-14 Jan (pictured)
Yesterday was the official start date of the London International Mime Festival, and it was my plan to tip a show from it yesterday, but then said show was sold out, so I replaced it with another event. Luckily, I had already lined up another tip of a show from said festival for today, and here it is: an award winning show of physical theatre focusing on the differences between animal behaviour and human movement.

Strangers In Between | Trafalgar Studios | 10 Jan-3 Feb
Part of the King’s Head Theatre in the West End season, ‘Strangers In Between’ returns by popular demand for a run at Trafalgar Studios. If you’ve already seen it, you’ll be aware that it’s by award winning playwright Tommy Murphy, and that it takes a look at growing up gay in Australia and the highs and lows that entails. If you haven’t, well, there you go. Book your tickets here.

East | King’s Head Theatre | 9 Jan-3 Feb
Over to the actual King’s Head now for a new revival of one of Steven Berkoff’s most recognisable works, ‘East’, returning to the theatre where it made its 1975 debut. This staging is produced by a company who did rather well in Edinburgh last year with their ‘Life According to Saki’, which won the Carol Tambor Best Of Edinburgh Award, so I think it’s probably in safe hands.
