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

Things We Chose To Save | New Diorama | 1 Jul
“In ten years’ time, we discover a way to record, store and replay memories at will. Editing memories becomes a booming business, and Molly is one of its leading lights. She watches thousands of other people’s memories every day. Billie, on the other hand, has no idea what she’s getting into when she decides to sell a memory of her own.” Another great sounding show from Incoming at New Diorama, this one an exploration of memory that promises to be both thoughtful and funny. All the info right about here.

This Is Not For You | Artillery Square | 30 Jun-1 Jul
The excellent Graeae Theatre Company – who you’re probably aware are a  D/deaf and disabled artist inclusive group – present this epic outdoor production which pays moving tribute to Britain’s wounded war veterans and their fight for respect and remembrance. Expect a poignant story depicted with wry humour which features audio description and sign language as integral elements. On as part of the Greenwich and Docklands Festival, see this page here for info.

Mabel & Mickey | Roundhouse | 1 Jul (pictured)
And speaking of festivals (and yes, we are, a lot) here’s yet another choice from the fine Last Word line up, a debut solo show by Kit Finnie described as a ghost story for a new generation: “Kit has written a show about Mabel Normand, one of the most notorious movie stars of early Hollywood, and the real cold murder case that threatened to swallow her legacy. But there are pigeons cooing in the walls of the theatre, and she keeps getting calls about a strange woman in her flat.” Details here.
