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

No Direction Home – Some Day Dominion | Camden People’s Theatre | 2 Nov
Kitty Fedorec – “Dance artist and perpetual teenage-goth” – presents this compelling sounding piece described as a mixture of live art, dance, ritual and gig, and which promises to use “ found movement, nostalgia, story telling, phonomancy and live music from gender-fucked tribute The Misters of Circe to create a protective pocket goth world, beyond borders”. Part of the much-mentioned No Direction Home season at CPT, for more info see the venue website here.

Brexit | King’s Head Theatre | 30 Oct-17 Nov
We’ve seen a number of quality plays by Robert Khan and Tom Salinsky up at the Edinburgh Festival in the last few years, and here’s another, on in London, so obviously I am excited. And it’s about Brexit too, which is nice of them, considering it’s one of my personal hobby horses. “A new Tory PM must unite his party’s warring factions with his masterful plan for a final Brexit deal. Just… what was it again?” Book your tickets here.

Bury The Dead | Finborough Theatre | 30 Oct-24 Nov
“When six dead soldiers stand up in their graves and refuse to be buried, the military are at a loss for what to do. The captains and generals attempt to persuade the men to lie down quietly but quickly discover it’s difficult to negotiate with men who have nothing left to lose.” Irwin Shaw’s 1936 play hasn’t been produced in the UK for eighty years, and gets its showing here as the last of Finborough Theatre’s GREATWAR100 series.
