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

Starman | London Wonderground | 23-24 Aug (pictured)
Oh, I love stars and pictures with stars and anything with stars, really, so this absolutely spoke to me, just with its lovely starry picture. But, you know, it sounds as though it will be a quality show, too, from a renowned company, featuring circus, comedy and, er, cardboard. I am sure all will become clear. See the venue website here for all the details.

Hannah Gadsby – Dogmatic | Soho Theatre | 23-27 Aug
Much critically acclaimed comedian Hannah Gadsby has been on our radar since we first witnessed her performing at the old edfringe a few years back. She is very, very good, so if I were you, I’d be very, very sensible, and head to the Soho Theatre website to book your tickets for this wonderful (yet possibly woeful?) show.

Cockroaches | The Cockpit | 23-24 Aug
“Set in a war-torn Russia at the beginning of the 20th century, ‘Cockroaches’ tells a story of five refugees, fleeing the Soviet regime in hope of finding a better life only to become aliens in an indifferent country.” This sounds great, is topical, and is made all the more interesting by the fact that it’s been translated by Ukrainian Anastasiya Sosis, who has first-hand experience of the ongoing civil war in her home country.
