TW’s tipped events TODAY IN LONDON feature an in-house(es) ‘Hedda Gabler’ production, committed contrarian (his words, not mine) and all time comedian’s comedian Daniel Kitson, and “Britain’s seventh best ventriloquist” Nina Conti…

COMEDY: Daniel Kitson – Analog.Ue, National Theatre, 17-20 Mar
Last chance to plug into lone wolf Daniel Kitson’s lo-fi story of sound, a kind of audio book that’s split up and spread over multiple reel-to-reel recorders. Details and tickets here.

COMEDY: Nina Conti – Dolly Mixtures, Tricycle Theatre, 17-21 Mar
Tip-top ventriloquist Nina Conti dips into a dark, dazzling and delectable grab-bag of characters, man-handling a cast that features unpredictable soft-toy replicas of her handyman, her gran, her oldest friend and a stray dog, to brilliant (and occasionally hysterical) effect. Details and tickets here.

THEATRE: Hedda, various locations, 17 Mar-12 Apr (pictured)
In a new travelling adaptation, theatre crew Palimpsest establish Ibsen’s ill-fated ‘Hedda Gabler’ – the tale of a newlywed wife and her dramatic demise – in a series of beautiful old houses.  Details and tickets here.
