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

Strindberg’s Women | Jermyn Street | 2-26 Nov
Being an angry feminist, I like anything with ‘women’ in the title. Or, I don’t know, maybe not.  A play with ‘women’ in the title could be ‘I Hate Women’, a one person show reflecting the writer’s views. Luckily, that’s not what this is, it’s two Strindberg plays: firstly ‘The Stronger’, about a wife tormented by her husband’s affair, and secondly, ‘The Storm’, in which former lovers are reunited with angry and passionate results. See this page here for all the info.

Wild At Heart | Pentameters Theatre | 1-20 Nov
And so to another master playwright, this time Tennessee Williams, and this collection of four of his short plays: ‘At Liberty’, ‘Mr Paradise’, ‘Talk To Me Like the Rain and Let Me Listen’ and ‘Hello From Bertha’. I love short plays, and I love Tennessee Williams, so this sounds pretty heavenly. See the venue website here for details.

Dane Baptiste – Reasonable Doubts | Soho theatre | 1-5+8 Nov
Argh, we almost missed this, just like we almost missed his run back in May, but we didn’t quite, so hurrah! If didn’t see him back in May, you still have time to catch the critically acclaimed, Edinburgh Comedy Award nominated Londoner performing his well-reviewed post-nomination show ‘Reasonable Doubts’. Head this way to see if there are any tickets left.
