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

Hear Me Raw | Arcola Theatre | 12-24 Feb
We interviewed the creator and star of ‘Hear Me Raw’, Daniella Isaacs, when she did a short run of the show at Soho Theatre in the autumn. And we were pleased to discover she’s back with a longer run at Arcola, because that means we can instruct readers who missed it in October to make sure and see it now. Right now. Head this way to book your tickets, and if you feel so inclined, click here to read that Q&A about the play.

The Tempest | Jack Studio | 13 Feb-3 Mar
“Suspended in time on an enchanted island, Duke Prospero lives in exile, comforted by his daughter Miranda and served by his sprite Ariel and Caliban, his slave. With nothing to do Prospero becomes obsessed by revenge. When storms wash up new travellers to these shores, vengeance at last seems within reach. But with the arrival of strangers Miranda discovers temptations of the flesh, and Caliban plots to murder his master.” Well, you’ve no doubt seen it before, possibly many times. But it’s a fab story, that’s why we still stage it, and I reckon this all female re-imagining will be a great version of it. See the venue website here for details.

May Contain Food, May Contain You | The Albany | 13 Feb
A kind-of-new show from Luca Silvestrini’s Protein Dance, a ‘refashioned’ version of 2016 production ‘May Contain Food’: it’s been adapted into a duet for dancers Sonya Cullingford and Matthew Winston, who both appeared in the original show show a couple of years back. Silvestrini’s choreography is renowned, and famously accessible, the sort that all you dance lovers should force your dance-sceptic friends to see so that they change their minds. And, incidentally, we interviewed him about the original version a while ago, should you like to read the article. See the venue website here for more.
