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

Magical Bones – Black Magic | Underbelly Festival | 2 Jul
Thought we’d have a trip over to Underbelly Festival because it’s been a while. And what a great show to make the effort for: Magical Bones returns to the Southbank with a brand new show that threatens to go “far and beyond the normal expectations of a traditional magic show and culminates in a spectacular finale that truly questions the limits of what is humanly possible”. Expect breakdance moves, back flipping card tricks and street magic, head this way for all the info.

Spun | Arcola Theatre | 27 Jun-28 Jul (pictured)
“Safa and Aisha have been best friends for years. They used to bunk off school, revise for exams together and even went to the same university. But now they’re forging different paths for the first time: Safa to work in the City, and Aisha to teach in Newham. When London is attacked one day in July, Safa and Aisha feel the whole world spinning. As extremes from all sides take hold of the city, can their friendship survive the upheaval?” Fab sounding debut play from Rabiah Hussain, see this page here for more.

US Independence Meltdown Show | 2Northdown | 2 Jul
Hurrah, it’s Independence Day! Well, okay, it’s not, but today at 2Northdown they’re holding an early celebration of the big day with a meeting of a host of US comedians who will come together to roast their home country. “A hilarious take-down of the US from the people who know it best.” runs the blurb, and those people are the likes of David Mills, Spring Day, Russell Hicks, Tim Renkow. Details right about here.
