David Tennant

TODAY IN LONDON king of stage and screen David Tennant, Christmas comics Karl Schultz and Joz Norris and opera polymath Claudia Molitor all feature in the following TW-recommended events…

COMEDY: Karl & Joz’s OTT Christmas Love-In, Bethnal Green Working Men’s Club, 9 Dec
Tonight’s joined-at-the-hip hosting combo, that’s Karl Schultz and Joz Norris, have gone way, way overboard in choosing the comics doing charity (in this case, Barking Salvation Army) a favour at tonight’s Christmas Love-In. Telly egghead Harry Hill, po-faced poet Tim Key, and always ace Edinburgh Comedy Award victrix Bridget Christie are all on hand, as are Sara Pascoe, Joe Lycett, John Kearns, Liam Williams, Pat Cahill, Will Franken, Lou Sanders, Bec Hill and Valdemar Pustelni. Details and tickets here.

OPERA: Remember Me – A Desk Opera, Rivington Place, 9-10 Dec
An operatic cog in the multi-arts machine that is this year’s Spitalfields Winter Festival, writer/composer/singer Claudia Molitor’s desk-inspired masterpiece-in-miniature ‘Remember Me’ is a ‘playful and imaginative curio’ that imagines a friendship between rival ill-fated heroines Dido and Eurydice. Details and tickets here.

THEATRE: The Five Minute Festival, LOST Theatre, 9-13 Dec
In a world in which no one has time, LOST’s fittingly compact celebration of short, sharp dramas pits a score of forty grass-roots drama companies – ten per night – against each other, to see who can lay on the greatest five min mini-play of all. Details and tickets here.

THEATRE: Richard II, Barbican, 9 Dec – 25 Jan 2014 (pictured)
New-ish RSC chief Gregory Doran’s grand and gloomy portrait of Shakespeare’s vainest king, which moves to the Barbican from the bard’s spiritual home in Stratford-Upon-Avon, stars David ‘The Doctor’ Tennant, Oliver Ford Davies and Nigel Lindsay. Details and tickets here.
