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

The Rebellious Women Of Wimbledon | Tara Theatre | 15 Oct
“Welcome everyone. Do take a seat, and enjoy the refreshments. We’re here tonight to talk about the cause of women. Quite simply, we’re here to change the world.” A new play from acclaimed playwright Beth Flintoff, which promises to be “an impassioned, unsentimental and sharp-witted tribute to the Suffragette cause in this centenary year”. See the venue website here for all the details.

The Giant Killers | Greenwich Theatre | 15 Oct
And speaking of historical fights for inclusion, here’s a footie focused piece set in the early years of Association Football: it’s about a group of Lancashire mill workers who defied the status quo to become the first working class team in the country to play in the FA cup. Strange to think, given its contemporary universality, that the game was previously the reserve of only upper class players. See this page here for more.

Ray Bradshaw – Deaf Comedy Fam | Soho Theatre | 15-17 Oct (pictured)
“1 in 6 people suffer from hearing loss. 2 of those people are Ray’s parents.” Acclaimed Scottish Comedian Of The Year finalist Ray Bradshaw heads to Soho Theatre with this edfringe hit replete with funny and revealing tales of growing up with deaf parents, which he performs in English and British Sign Language simultaneously. Head this way for more information and to book.
