Sprint 2018: Big Bang #1 | Camden People’s Theatre | 5 Mar
Yay yay yay, Sprint has come around again, CPT’s yearly festival of “adventurous” new performance, and kicking it off is one of the venue’s Big Bang events, a collection of four works in progress: ‘Not In My Name’, an abstract reaction to Brexit and the current political situation; ‘La Petite Bouffe’, a piece about competitive eating contests, inspired by the characteristics of Marco Ferreri͛s movie ‘La Grande Bouffe’; ‘Sheryl Talks Obesity’, a response to some of the issues faced by contemporary society; and ‘Void’, which explores “human need, desire, obligatory love, and the addictive nature of Tesco meal deals”.

Superman And Me and A Festival Of Other Loves In Crisis | Canal Cafe Theatre | 5-7 + 12-14 Mar
Another festival, this time on a smaller scale, presented Little Pieces of Gold and The Canal Cafe Theatre, and focusing on the theme of the ups and downs of being in love. The format will see a nightly performance of headlining play ‘Superman & Me’ – which sees average couple Lois and Clark wondering what happened to their once-perfect relationship – accompanied by a selection of short plays from up and coming UK based female playwrights. See the venue website here for all the details.

Glenn Wool – Viva Forever | 2Northdown | 5-7 Mar (pictured)
Brilliant stand-up and all round edfringe legend Glenn Wool heads to 2Northdown with the show he performed up there in Edinburgh in 2017, which, as you’d expect, got a great response from the critics and everyone I know who saw it. If you’ve not seen him in action before, a) you are absolutely in the wrong and need to rectify the situation, and b) you will not regret it. Head this way for information and to book for the 5 Mar, see listings here for the other dates.
