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

Fin Taylor et al | The Good Ship | 11 Sep
A customarily cracking line up over at the Good Ship’s comedy night this week: The excellent Fin Taylor (of Whitey McWhiteface and Bearpit podcast renown) heads the bill, but you also have recent Comedy Award nominee Jordan Brookes, and a bunch of other really excellent comedy acts: Kelly Convey, Rhys Nicholson, Michael Stranney and Amy Howerska.

Angel | Arcola Theatre | 11 Sep-7 Oct (pictured)
This play inspired by the internet-fuelled myth of the Angel of Kobane took the edfringe by storm in 2016, and now rocks up at the Arcola for a reasonably chunky London run. Writer Henry Naylor has been around for a long time doing the comedy thing, as you are no doubt entirely aware, but in recent years turned his attention to some more serious stuff, with great results. See this page here for all the details.

The Unknown Island | Gate Theatre | 11 Sep-7 Oct
“You want to go in search of an unknown island. Because somewhere out there, there must be something else. Because you want to find out who you are when you are there.” A tale of adventure and dreaming of the impossible, based on prize-winning novelist Jose Saramago’s short story of the same name.
