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

The Non-Stop Connolly Show | Finborough Theatre | 4-24 April (selected dates)
Now, this is all a bit complex to explain in just one short paragraph, but I will try. This revival Margaretta D’Arcy and John Arden’s epic verse piece telling the life story of Easter Rising leader James Connolly is split into different performances of the different sections on different days, and then at the end there will be two full day performances of the whole thing, throughout which you can ‘come and go as you please’. Specially recommended to those with a particular interest in the subject, but a great chance for anyone to see a very special piece in full. See this page here for more info.

In The Bar Of A Tokyo Hotel | Charing Cross Theatre | 4 Apr-14 May
A production of one of Tennessee Williams’ less well known works, which stands out from the rest of his oeuvre for its more experimental style, and which tells the tale of the difficult relationship between a world famous artist and his wife. A great creative team are on board for this revival, which stars the excellent Linda Marlowe. See the venue website here for details and to book.

John Luke Roberts – Stdad Up | Soho Theatre | 4-9 Apr (pictured)
This run of dates at the Soho Theatre follows a successful series of performances at last year’s Edinburgh Festival, where John Luke Roberts won widespread praise for “dressing up as his dead father and performing one of the strangest, funniest and most emotionally exhausting shows in town”. Provocative, bold, fearless and definitely worth seeing. Book your tickets right here.
