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

Eros | White Bear Theatre | 28 Aug-15 Sep
“Ross used to take photos of women. He says it was about beauty. Now Kate’s back in his studio after twenty years. She remembers things differently. She says she’s there for justice. With one click anything becomes an image, and image is everything. What happens when fantasy becomes more real than flesh?” A play about the female body, consent and agency, at a time when these things seem ever more under threat. See this page here for more.

The Humans | Hampstead Theatre | 30 Aug-13 Oct
I am pretty sure the tickets for this will be going super quickly, so if you’re interested, I’d get organised and get your skates on: The UK premiere of the Broadway production of Stephen Karam’s ‘The Humans’, winner of four 2016 Tony Awards. It’s about the Blake family, three generations of whom assemble for Thanksgiving in a pre-war Lower Manhattan apartment. “As they attempt to focus on the traditional festivities, fears of the past and pressures of the future seep into the reunion and the precariousness of their position becomes increasingly evident”.

Live At The Chapel with Tom Allen | Union Chapel | 1 Sep (pictured)
Hurrah, Live At The Chapel returns to, um, the chapel. The Union Chapel to be precise, of course. And it’s as great a line up as you’d expect, given previous form: Tom Allen’s the headliner – and you all know how good he is – but the other confirmed acts aren’t what you’d call slouches either: the excellent Mae Martin, and TV panel show botherer Ed Gamble. Plus, more to be announced it says. Can you afford to miss it? See this page here.
