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

Frankenstein | Jack Studio Theatre | 26 Sep-1 Oct
I doubt you need much telling of what ‘Frankenstein’ is all about but I will make it clear that this is a ‘proper’ version, a brand new adaptation based on Mary Shelley’s novel. It’s already an amazing and gripping tale, and this staging is in the very safe hands of critically acclaimed producing company Arrows & Traps. For more information and to book, head right this way.

The Duchess Of Malfi | Drayton Arms Theatre | 26 Sep-1 Oct
And another classic that probably doesn’t need much introduction, again brought to you by a tried and tested outfit, Alisdair Kitchen’s Euphonia Studio. This staging, a new and streamlined adaptation of the play, previewed earlier this summer at The Cockpit and now heads for a short run at Drayton Arms Theatre. See this page here for details.

The Hartlepool Monkey | Stratford Circus |19-30 Sep (pictured)
“A French ship runs aground off the coast of England. Only a cabin girl and the ship’s mascot, a chimpanzee, survive and make it to shore. But the townsfolk mistake the monkey, in its military uniform, for a spy, and condemn him to a life-or-death trial.” Eek, only a few opportunities left now to see this fab looking family show based on historical legend.
