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

Il Letto | Arcola Theatre | 21-22 Aug
More from Grimeborn at Arcola now, but this isn’t strictly an opera, but a ‘plaria’ – a play with music – brought to you by the acclaimed Helios Collective. It focuses on Elvira Bonturi, wife of the celebrated composer Giacomo Puccini, and her husband’s music and infidelities. For more information and to book, see this page here.

Late Company | Trafalgar Studios | 21 Aug-16 Sep (pictured)
“One year after the suicide of their teenage son, Debora and Michael sit down to dinner with their son’s bully and his parents. Closure is on the menu, but accusations are the main course as good intentions are gradually stripped away to reveal layers of parental, sexual, and political hypocrisy – at a dinner party where grief is the loudest guest.” You might have seen this when it was on at the Finborough back in the spring, but if you didn’t, here’s your chance to see this acclaimed play exploring cyberbullying, parenting, and restorative justice.

Tania Edwards – Subject To Change | Camden Comedy Club | 21-24 Aug
Back over to Camden Fringe (and specifically Camden Comedy Club) for a date with rather good comedian and writer Tania Edwards, who you might have recently seen supporting Katherine Ryan on her sold out UK tour. But you know, even if you did, embrace this chance to see her again. Head this way for all the info.
