The Lumberjacks

Say, what cultural attractions has London on show today? Silly to ask really, especially when these comical/theatrical treats are there for the taking…


The Lumberjacks, Leicester Square Theatre, 30 May – 1 Jun (pictured)
Tonight, three really is the magic number, as bigtime Canadian maple-topplers Stewart Francis, Craig Campbell and Glenn Wool go a’hacking and a’slashing as one. Yes, that’s right… The Lumberjacks are back (still). Details and tickets here.


Dances Of Death, Gate Theatre, 30 May – 6 Jul
Tom Littler directs this Gate-based restaging of August Strindberg’s two-act relationship drama, as its central characters, ‘magnificently doomed’ marrieds Edgar and Alice, bask in a malign marital battle… to its bitter end. Details and tickets here.

Moth, Bush Theatre, 30 May – 8 Jun
Billed as a kind of hybrid of ‘Donnie Darko’, ‘Disco Pigs’ and ‘Copenhagen’, new playwright on the scene Declan Greene’s misfit fantasy ‘Moth’ follows the strange, dark and heartbreaking flight-path of Sebastian, a comic-book ‘loser’ kid who wakes one day to find a moth (and with it a ‘calling’) in a jar by his bed. Details and tickets here.
