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

Random Selfies | Ovalhouse | 27 Mar-7 Apr (pictured)
A new play, aimed at older children, by Olivier Award-winning playwright Mike Kenny, staged as part of Ovalhouse’s three year exploration into the impact loneliness has on young people. It’s about Loretta, a ten year old girl with a vivid imagination: “If I lived in the middle of nowhere, you could understand it. If I was halfway up a mountain. Or at the side of a lake. And I had no brothers or sisters. Well, you could understand it. Couldn’t you. If I said I was lonely. But I’m not any of that. I live in a flat. In one of the biggest cities on the planet. I’m never alone. But I am lonely.” Info here.

The Pin | New Diorama | 27-28 Mar
This appears to be a set of in progress shows (there are further dates beyond March) so you might be thinking this is maybe a show for die-hard fans of this sketch duo. But they are really good, so you might want to continue on from that train of thought to the one that’s saying that they are in fact really good, so their work in progress might be better than another performer’s finished article. And you might want to move on to consider that they’ve been on radio 4 and that our reviewer once praised their “flair for written comedy” and their “fantastic ability” to take sketch to the next level. And then book a ticket. Here.

Sleeping Trees Comedy Garden | Battersea Arts Centre | 27 Mar
And so from a comedy duo to a comedic trio, and their line up of really special, special guests. TW favourites Sleeping Trees come out to play, and invited to join them this evening are Rob Carter as Christopher Bliss, Joz Norris, Gein’s Family Giftshop and Lou Sanders. See, I told you they were special, didn’t I? What a treat, all those great acts. And don’t despair, if you can’t make this particular show, they’ll be back with the same format on 2 May and 7 Jun. Details right about here.
