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

Shit-faced Shakespeare | Leicester Square Theatre | 26 Apr-11 Jun (pictured)
I absolutely deny all rumours that the only reason I recommend this ensemble any time they appear is because I like writing the phrase “Shit-faced Shakespeare”. The truth is, I do like writing the phrase “Shit-faced Shakespeare”, but I also know full well that this is a highly amusing concept for a show, and I also know that they’ve had lots of good reviews (yes, including one from us). See the venue website here for details and tickets

Mark Thomas – Trespass | Tricycle Theatre | 25 Apr-7 May
Very excellent stand-up/activist/justice warrior Mark Thomas takes his latest set to Tricycle Theatre, and if you want to go, get your tickets booked, because it looks to me like they’re selling pretty fast. “If the ramblers of the 1930’s were here now, what would they do to open up the cities?” the show asks.  “How do we turn the skyscrapers and corporate squares into our playgrounds?”. Head this way for info and to book.

Punching The Sky | Soho Theatre | 26-30 Apr
Everyone knows that things have got a bit tricky with regard to young people and porn, and here is a piece that appears to tackle the issue head on. Written by Lizi Patch in response to the media storm that ensued after she blogged about her own experiences with regard to her son’s exposure to pornography, the piece “delves into the democratic space of the internet and shines a light on the contradictory nature of our feelings about sex, censorship and parenthood”.
