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

Fear And Misery Of The Third Reich | Jack Studio | 16 Jan-3 Feb
A production of Bertold Brecht’s ‘Fear And Misery Of The Third Reich’, staged by Aequitas Theatre Company, who promise to apply the themes of the play to our contemporary global society; set in a near future, it imagines what the world might become if we continue to repeat the same mistakes. See the venue website here for information and to book.

Edward II | Greenwich Theatre | 16-27 Jan (pictured)
“The King is dead. His son, Edward II, is crowned King. His first act: to call home from banishment his lover, Gaveston”. This acclaimed production from Lazarus Theatre Company of the Marlowe tragedy returns to London following its sell out 2017 run marking the decriminalisation of homosexuality in England and Wales. Possibly not for the faint-of-heart, though, it’s quite brutal, as you may know. See this page here for details.

Sacha Guitry Ma Fille Et Moi | Drayton Arms Theatre | 16 Jan-3 Feb
A tribute to Sacha Guitry marking the sixtieth anniversary of his death, this show is in French, but it does have English surtitles, so don’t be put off if you’re not a speaker. In it, an actress tells her daughter about her tempestuous relationship with the French writer, actor and director, celebrating his admiration for women and talent for mixing fiction with reality.
