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

Gulliver’s Travels | Wilton’s Music Hall | 27 July (pictured)
We like the company behind this show – Familia De La Noche – so much that we gave them an Editors’ Award recently, for work they have done up at the Edinburgh Fringe. We are therefore very much looking forward to seeing this preview of their next Festival show, their dark and funny adaptation of the Jonathon Swift classic featuring tiny people, huge people, talking horses, mad scientists, necromancers and decrepit immortals with the secret of eternal life. See this page here for all the info.

Swansong | New Diorama | 27 Jul
Aaaaaaand DugOut, another one of our favourite companies, who we also first met in Edinburgh, are also presenting a preview of their latest edfringe show tonight, over at New Diorama. They’re known for their funny, sketch-and-film influenced theatre, and I would hazard a guess that this new piece continues in that same vein, as they examine “how lies become stories and stories become legend”. For more details, see the venue website here.

Rotterdam | Trafalgar Studios | 26 Jul-27 Aug
This show initially had a critically acclaimed and sell out run at the excellent Theatre503 last summer, and this year heads to Trafalgar Studios for a very limited run. It’s from  acclaimed writer Jon Brittain, co-creator of ‘Margaret Thatcher Queen of Soho’, and writer of ‘What Would Spock Do?’ and ‘The Sexual Awakening of Peter Mayo’, and is a comedy about gender and sexuality. See this page here to book.
