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

Glass Roots | Tristan Bates Theatre | 28 Feb-24 Mar
Sadjit and Thila are the owners of a popular Indian restaurant in east London, but life takes a turn for the worse when they find themselves terrorised by racist thugs. ‘Glass Roots’ takes a look at what happens when you are bullied, and have no way to fight back, and addresses what happens when ignorance, racism, class and jealousy collide. See the venue website here for more information and to book tickets.

This Is Not Culturally Significant | Vault Festival | 2-3 Mar (pictured)
We’ve practically covered this show to death, between London and the old Ed Fest, but it’s been a while, so for old times sake, we’d like to recommend that any fringe theatre loving readers that have somehow, miraculously, managed to miss seeing this show, see it now. Because it’s completely and absolutely super. And there are only two opportunities at this Vault Festival, so come on, get a move on, head this way.

Alternate Time Flows | King’s Place | 2 Mar
Yes, yes, I’m a time travel addict, and that’s why this jumped out at me, but obviously I am not actually expecting time travel, not least because the listing doesn’t promise any, but also because this is a concert, not a pseudoscience event or whacky Back To The Future themed improv show. Now that’s cleared up, I’ll stop the nonsense and explain that you can expect the mighty Evelyn Glennie and the O/Modernt Quartet  for “a programme that explodes, condenses and stretches time”, to include works by Janáček, Golijov and Beethoven.
