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

Floods | Camden People’s Theatre | 9 Nov
A look at two women’s attitudes to the ethics of reproduction in an over-populated world, exploring our fears for the future, being resourceful when resources are diminished, and what is left for the next generation. Expect an inventive and funny piece and an insight into some rather difficult matters from London based all-female ensemble Urban Foxes Collective. For information and to book, see the venue website here.

M.A.I.R.O.U.L.A | Etcetera Theatre | 9-12 Nov (pictured)
M.A.I.R.O.U.L.A is an acronym, as you can see, but I’m not sure what for – I think this is something you’ll probably find out if you go and see the show, which is by acclaimed Greek playwright Lena Kitsopoulou, and promises to include talk of sex, death and watermelons. This is another show on as part of The Cockpit’s Voila Europe season, but this is on at Etcetera Theatre so don’t get mixed up about that. Click here for details.

No Place Like Hope | Old Red Lion Theatre | 7-25 Nov
“Anna and Becca aren’t where they’re supposed to be. While serving a community punishment order Becca is sent to a hospice to work and meets Anna, a cancer patient.” An unlikely friendship based on honesty ensues, in this award winning play by Callum McGowan, written to pass the Bechdel test, and staged by an all female team in partnership with cancer care charity Victoria’s Promise.
