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

Hamotzi | Theatre503 | 11-14 Jul
“Add one shamefully flirtatious violinist to a blend of interfering mother in laws and bland husbands, sprinkle a dash of patriarchal frustration and voila! It’s the Sabbath dinner at Rochalle’s, and you’re all invited. So light the candles, salt the challah and let’s dig in!” Another offering from Mountview’s Catalyst festival of shows produced by the students from Mountview’s MA in Creative Producing, this one written by Emma Zadow and performed by Elizabeth Schenk. See this page here for more.

Tom Allen – Absolutely | Soho Theatre | 11-21 Jul
You all know him, because he’s all over the telly, appearing in shows like ‘Mock The Week’, ‘8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown’ and ‘The Great British Bake Off’s Extra Slice’ as well as popping up on some of my favourite radio shows – ‘Just a Minute’ and ‘The News Quiz’. You all will therefore know that he’s brilliant, but that means everyone else does too, and that’s why tickets will be going like hot cakes. So head this way quickly to claim yours.

Tortoise | The Bunker Theatre | 11-14 Jul (pictured)
A story of escapism, grief and the pressures to succeed performed by young performers from the the National Youth Theatre’s Playing Up company: “Sometimes things just go missing. And when the thing closest to Luna goes missing, she finds the perfect place to hide. Comet Canyon. A virtual landscape that she understands. A place where pixels allow her to be whoever she wants to be. A place where your friends are usernames and where the young can finally take some control.” Details here.
