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

The Full Bronte | The Space | 30 Oct-3 Nov
It’s been quite a while since we first saw this show at the Edinburgh and our reviewer described it as a “wonderfully raucous journey though the life and work of the Brontës”. It’s actually even longer ago than I thought it was when I began writing that sentence, because obviously in order to find the words for the latter half of it I had to look up the relevant review and discovered that we published it in 2013 which is aaaages ago. So, given the hiatus, I’m extra glad to see this “wonderful juxtaposition of vulgar humour and high culture” back. More here.

Placebo | The Place | 30 Oct-10 Nov (pictured)
“A room full of expectation, suggestion and infectious rhythm. What is fake and what is real? Is the movement the medicine?” In ‘Placebo’ the very excellent Clod Ensemble look at the placebo effect. “By playing with themes such as expectation, suggestion, pleasure and pain, the performers ask: do we have the power to make ourselves feel better?” See this page here for information and to book your tickets.

Black Ice | Theatre503 | 30 Oct-3 Nov
A rather interesting sounding piece from London based writer and performance poet Atlanta Green: “a poetic journey of two cell mates as they explore friendship, addiction, motherhood and murder, as old secrets and inner demons are brought to light. The prestigious ex trophy wife Rhonda meets slick-mouthed, ex cocaine-obsessed Claudia resulting in a hilarious yet heart warming story.” See the venue website here for all the details.
