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

Scene Gym Shorts | Arcola Theatre | 15 Jul (pictured)
One of those sorts of nights so much loved by me and my reviewers, a selection of tasty looking short plays, this time courtesy of Scene Gym, who run innovative workshop programme to offer writers, directors and actors a chance to work together on new plays. On view tonight: ‘Never Have I Ever’ by Caitlin Abra Middleton, ‘Debris’ by Joe James Stu, ‘Lovesick’ by James McDermott, ‘Class mates’ by Micah Smith, and ‘Out of The Dark’ by Suzy Gill. Head this way for more.

Eggshells | King’s Head Theatre | 15 Jul
“Hannah can’t take much more of Glen’s strange behaviour and her best friend Jim thinks a Singapore Sling is the answer to all their problems. As the night unfolds Hannah and Glen’s relationship, honesty and openness is tested to its maximum as the recent events in the city they love falls on top of them. A physical, lyrical comedy addressing a serious issue more common place than you may have first thought…” Another choice from King’s Head Theatre’s Playmill festival , see this link here to book your tickets.

John Pendal – We Are Family | Museum Of Comedy | 15 Jul
If you’re headed up to the Edinburgh Festival next month, this is something you should definitely have on your to-see list. If you’re not, look, you’ve got a chance to see it now! This is Pendal’s third comedy hour, and I can assure you that the first two were very highly regarded. For more information, see this page here.
