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

Children Are Stinky | Underbelly Festival | 29 May-17 Jun
So, the bank holiday’s over, but if you have children, they may be at home with you, hankering after something to do, and whilst spending time outside is probably a good thing at this time of year, there’s probably only so much of that you can do, so why not take them to a show? This show in fact? It had a great run at the Edinburgh Fringe last year – our reviewer was very complimentary – so definitely worth a look. Click right about here.

Don’t Panic – It’s Challenge Anneka! | The Bunker Theatre | 29 May-9 Jun (pictured)
Another show that’s had a successful run at the edfringe (note: there are three of them in today’s tips), and which a topic that’s close to my heart, and which it’s often hard to talk about: overcoming anxiety. A fab and acclaimed one-woman show that “channels the spirit of someone for whom no challenge is too big”. Ah, childhood memories of Anneka flooding back. See this page here for more.

Black Catfish Musketeer | Camden People’s Theatre | 29 May-2 Jun
“It’s about meeting someone online, and all you know is their name and that they seem to like you as much as you like them. In fact, you think you love each other. But do you? Can you? And what is love, anyway? Maybe we don’t only not know, we can’t know; so let’s say what it isn’t.” This show did well at Dublin Fringe in 2016 and at the Edinburgh Festival in 2017, so expect good things.
