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

Bricking It | Battersea Arts Centre | 13-15 Oct (pictured)
This is the first of two recommended-cos-we-saw-it-at-the-Fringe things for today. ‘Bricking It’ is the work of a writing and performing daughter and her bricklayer father: in order to create this piece, the pair swapped jobs, he learned how to be a comedian, and she built the stage for his debut. Fun, but also an interesting look at how what you do affects who you are. See the venue website here for more info.

The Marked | Ovalhouse | 13-22 Oct
And this is the second, a show which our reviewer called “A marvellous journey, which ended too quickly”. The excellent Theatre Temoin are the team behind this story of London’s homeless, told with puppets and masks and a physical approach. It’s inspired by real-life testimony, and shines an important light on the pressing problem of of homelessness. See this page here for details.

A Symphony Of Voices | The Actors’ Church | 13 Oct
This concert from multi-racial nearly-25-years-old touring group Pegasus Opera Company is intended as a celebration of Black History Month, and features the likes of Gweneth Ann Rand, Anne Fridal, Ronald Samm, Byron Jackson and Waiyin Lee. Expect Puccini, Verdi, Mascagni, Gershwin and Negro Spirituals and some audience participation. For more info and to book tickets, head this way.
