Three To See on 29 Nov: Unknowing, Scrooge & The Seven Dwarves, Awful Things Can Happen At Any Time – An Uplifting Musical

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

Unknowing | Tristan Bates Theatre | 29 Nov-3 Dec
This sounds interesting. A chamber opera based on Robert Schumann’s Dichterliebe and Frauenliebe und Leben song cycles, ‘Unknowing’ charts a couple’s turbulent and violent relationship, and offers a “poetic meditation” on the power – destructive and creative – of love. See the venue website here for more info.

Scrooge & The Seven Dwarves | Theatre503 | 23 Nov-7 Jan
The very brilliant Sleeping Trees have returned to Theatre503 (this is their third year) with another very classy and excellent show. Well, okay, I haven’t seen it, so I can’t be absolutely one hundred percent sure that it’s classy and excellent, but Sleeping Trees are very classy and excellent and I confidently predict that you will love their slightly different approach to a traditional British panto. See this page here for details.

Awful Things Can Happen At Any Time – An Uplifting Musical | Camden People’s Theatre | 29 Nov-3 Dec (pictured)
“Tonight they will stand up and kick out melodramatic songs to preset rock and pound shop pop using an ipad with a cracked screen that they are always arguing over. But it’s worth it for the dream of hits and stadiums.” This is on as part of that previously mentioned All The Right Notes Festival over at CPT, and I’m glad they added the ‘uplifting’ bit of the title, not least because I don’t think the contents of this show will be remotely awful. “This is a show about wanting to be in a band and then being in one.” Hurrah, click this link here.
