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

Dog Show | New Diorama | 29 Sep-17 Oct
We love the producing company behind ‘Dog Show’, and we have loved them since they very first started creating theatre, which was quite a long time ago now. Kandinsky always choose great topics to make plays about, and this one’s no exception: true life happenings – the serial, deliberate poisonings of dogs in Hong Kong – are transposed to London in this part-silent film, part thriller about “what it means to be human”. Info and tickets, this page here.

Volpone | Jack Studio Theatre | 29 Sep-17 Oct
Tell you what else I love? Anything set in the nineteen twenties, and with all the paraphernalia that involves. But wait, I hear you say, surely ‘Volpone’ is a seventeenth century work…? Well, yes, I reply, but it wouldn’t be the first time a theatre company took a classic and set it in a different period, would it? Anyway, I think we can trust Scena Mundi Theatre to do a good job of this. See the venue website here for more info and tickets.

Shaolin Monks | Peacock Theatre | 29 Sep-17 Oct (pictured)
Wow, I just noticed that every show I am tipping for today has the exact same run dates. It’s a sign. A sign that you should all go and see all three of them, optionally starting with this one, which I am deeply excited about, being a bit of a Monk aficionado. I confidently predict it will be an attention grabbing triumph of spectacularly choreographed Shaolin Kung Fu with perfect production values. So get your tickets here.
