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

Swing By Around 8 | Theatre N16 | 20 Nov-1 Dec (pictured)
“It’s just a dinner party. A normal civilised dinner party. Except it’s not – definitely not.” This comedy by Jess Bray, described as ‘Ayckbourn-esque’, did well at the 2015 edfringe and is now presented at the excellent Theatre N16 as part of their new First Credit scheme, which offers actors and directors the chance to get their first professional credit in the business. See this page here for more info and to book.

Tonight With Donny Stixx | The Bunker | 8 Nov-3 Dec
Oh, and as it happens, this is another show that had a very successful Edinburgh Festival run in 2015, for which the play’s star Sean Michael Verey won a Stage award. It’s been on for a few days already so I am a bit late to the party, but you still have plenty of dates to see this highly acclaimed one man show about delusion and our collective obsession with celebrity.

The Other Place | Camden People’s Theatre | 20 Nov
This is part of Camden People’s Theatre’s latest festival All The Right Notes, a series of different events exploring what happens when gigs and theatre collide. ‘The Other Place’ tells the true story of two Devon musicians journeying to Westminster in the week before a UK general election, performing the same song in various locations along the way. See the venue website here for details.
