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

Victim | King’s Head Theatre | 31 Mar-21 Apr
We already recommended this within recent history, back in February when it was on at Soho Theatre for one night only. So this is great news for those of you who thought “that looks great, but oh no, I’m already committed to doing something else that night”, because there are going to be loads of nights, at an easily accessible location. Hurrah. An award-winning, well received show in Edinburgh last summer, it’s a darkly comic story of a power struggle between prison guard and inmate. book your tickets here.

Mirrors | Leicester Square Theatre | 28 Mar-14 Apr
This has two things in common with the previous tip. No, wait, three. Firstly, they’re both one woman shows. Two, we’ve previously tipped both of them. And three, they’ve both had highly acclaimed previous runs so you know they’re going to be good. Oh, and now I’ve found a fourth thing – they’re both darkly comical, see: “Both a black comedy and a modern fairytale, ‘Mirrors’ is a provocative and poetic exploration of narcissism and neurosis.” Head this way for all the info.

Junk | Little Angel Theatre | 16 Mar-29 Apr (pictured)
And, because it’s the start of the Easter holidays for most people, here’s one for those of you looking for child-sized entertainment. This isn’t for teeny ones, but will be perfect for older kids and pre-teens. It’s an interactive puppetry piece about the things we throw away, and offers a highly participatory experience in which the audience contribute to the show’s narrative.
