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

Half Breed | Soho Theatre | 28-29 Jul
“Jazmin feels different. She doesn’t want to stay in the village. She doesn’t want to have a baby. She doesn’t want to laugh at racist jokes in the local pub. She’s got to get out.” An award shortlisted, partly autobiographical dark comedy about being different – specifically, mixed race – and finding your voice. It’s written and performed by Natasha Marshall, and is part of the venue’s Soho Rising strand, see this page here for info.

Sleeping Trees | Theatre503 | 28 Jul
Ah, the excellent Sleeping Trees, who never fail to draw my attention and my desire to tip them endlessly. They’re appearing at Theatre503 as part of their line up of – quelle surprise – Edinburgh previews, and the show they are performing here, ‘Mafia’, is one element of their acclaimed live movie trilogy, all of which they are taking back to the Fringe this year. See the venue website here for details.

And look, you get a chance to have a look, before it heads north, you lucky lot. Head this way for more.
