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

Don’t Stop Thinking About Tomorrow | Chickenshed | 8-31 Mar
Chickenshed present this new musical addressing an important issue – that of man-made climate change – through what promises to be an engaging central narrative. Expect theatre, new and original music and dancein a thought provoking piece aimed at a wide ranging audience: I think this definitely looks suitable for older children, so I reckon it might be a nice show to see as a family. Information right about here.

Moth Man | Old Red Lion Theatre | 8 Mar
“Lepidopterist, Dave, tries to cope with his recent breakup by transforming into a Moth. His sister, Amber, must put aside her own feelings in order to coax him from his cocoon. However, Dave and Amber will discover that not everything is as simple as Moth and Man, when a series of hidden betrayals emerge, forcing them to confront what is really happening behind the makeshift wings and all the maple syrup.” This new play, showcased by Blackshaw Theatre Company, sounds rather intriguing. Only limited numbers of public tickets though, I think, as it’s an industry focused performance. See this page here for more.

Returning To Haifa | Finborough Theatre | 27 Feb-24 Mar
I had planned to tip this earlier in its run, but it kept being sold out at the start (and continues to be) so I wasn’t sure there was any point in mentioning it earlier if you wouldn’t be able to get a ticket anyway. In any case, this would probably (and seemingly has) piqued anyone’s interest, given the volatile subject matter. It’s the first English language adaptation of Ghassan Kanafani’s novella about two families – one Palestinian, one Israeli – living side by side. See the venue website here for details.
