Birthday Girls – Late Night Comedy Party | Soho Theatre | 30 Mar
“Ever wanted a lock-in with the cream of the UK’s comedy circuit in the heart of London’s West End? Well your dreams have just come true. Join critically acclaimed sketch group and self-proclaimed legends Birthday Girls as they host a chaotic evening of comedy guests, drinking and kissing.” They’ve put it better than I would. And yes, they are legends. See this page here.

Love Me Now | Tristan Bates Theatre | 27 Mar – 14 Apr
We recently published a Q&A with the writer and producer of this show – Michelle Barnette – so we know that it’s about love and casual dating, and just how toxic it can all be. Expect a piece that explores how we can end up pushing our own boundaries too far, and finish by accepting the worst sort of behaviour as some kind of normality. See the venue website here for more info.

Pressure | Park Theatre | 28 Mar-28 Apr (pictured)
It’s June 1944, and the allies are poised to launch the Normandy landings. We know what happened, because it’s history, but in the play, they’re on the brink of a make-or-break decision: whether or not to attack comes down to the most important weather forecast of all time. An acclaimed piece, by an acclaimed actor and writer – David Haig – that you won’t want to miss. Head this way for details.
