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

From The Lab – A Sharing Of New Work | Etcetera Theatre | 2 Sep
We love new and growing cultural things so of course we like the sound of ‘From The Lab’. The Scenic Route are the group behind this sharing of “innovative, expressive storytelling” from a diverse range of new voices, part of their drive to provide accessible opportunities to nurture new talent. The work on show has been put together through a series of masterclasses, practical exercises and rehearsals, during which a cross-disciplinary piece was devised, incorporating physical theatre, text and music.

Nathaniel Metcalfe – Chameleon, Comedian, Corinthian and Caricature | The Bill Murray | 2 Sep
We rather liked Nathaniel Metcalfe’s first two hours here at TW Towers, and noticed his absence from the ye old edfringe in recent years. This year he came back, with his third solo show. If you missed his new show up there, or if you didn’t go to Edinburgh at all, here’s your chance to see him in action. In this show, he “investigates what it means to be an “artist”, taking inspiration from such notable figures as David Bowie and Jeremy Irons”. See this page here for more.

Shoot From The Hip Improv Night | The Bill Murray | 2 Sep
And as we are at The Bill Murray for Nathaniel Metcalfe, I thought we’d stay on for this, one of those shows that’s on very frequently, and therefore is the kind of show that gets a bit ignored by this kind of format. New Year’s Resolution (or, new school year resolution): to make sure long running and regular nights aren’t left out. Starting with this, from a improv troupe, who’ve won much acclaim from people I know, as well as other people I don’t know, and various official critic-type people. See this page here for info.
