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

The Rink | Southwark Playhouse | 25 May-23 Jun
Kander and Ebb’s Tony Award winning 1984 musical gets an airing in London for the first time in twenty years, so if you’re a fan of said musical-creating partnership, you may already have this on your tick list. If not, now you know it’s on, so get it on that tick list. And of course, if you’re a fan of musicals in general, I’m sure you’ll want to take a look here for more information too.

Conquest | The Bunker Theatre | 29 May-9 Jun (pictured)
“A chance meeting in a pharmacy. Alice is looking for the morning after pill. Instead she meets Jo, and is drawn into a world of radical, female activism. Welcome to Conquest: the world’s first revenge cupcake company.” You may possibly have seen this show centring on sexual consent and misconduct during its well recieved run at Vault Festival, but if you didn’t, and regret that, here it is, handily, on at The Bunker until 9 Jun.

Stitchers | Jermyn Street Theatre | 30 May-23 Jun
“Lady Anne Tree – one of the most aristocratic women in England – spent her life in prisons. As a visitor, she saw first-hand the aggression, low self-esteem, and high reoffending rates among the most hardened criminals. Lady Anne thought she had the answer. She would teach them needlecraft.” Based on a true story, this is the first stage play by acclaimed novelist Esther Freud, and stars the excellent Sinéad Cusack. Head this way to book.
