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

Canoe | King’s Head Theatre | 22-26 Oct
This show departed this year’s edfringe with a serious clutch of very glowing critical responses so you can count on it to be excellent, but bear in mind it deals with some fairly serious and difficult issues: “Fatherhood. A fatal canoe accident. Who are we now we don’t have kids? A couple come face to face with the powerlessness of parenthood.” Book your tickets here.

Mark Thomas – Check-up | Arcola Theatre | 22 Oct-3 Nov
Hurrah, your fave and mine, back at the Arcola, talking about what this time? Yes, the NHS: “Mark Thomas is 54, the NHS is 70. UK national average life expectancy is 84. If Mark makes it to 84 the NHS will be 100… What will they both look like? Based on a series of interviews with leading experts and residencies in hospitals and surgeries, Mark explores our NHS to see where we are, where we are going and where we should be.” Details right about here.

Ayesha Hazarika – Girl On Girl – The Fight For Feminism | Soho Theatre | 22-27 Oct (pictured)
“So, what happened to feminism? Is it too posh? Too white? When did Germaine Greer become Richard Littlejohn? Whose feminism is it anyway? And who asked your opinion, Piers f**king Morgan?” I suspect a fair number of people are asking themselves questions like these at the moment so if you’re one of them, perhaps you’d like to hear Ayesha Hazarika, comedian/former Labour special advisor, give you her take on it all.
