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

Bucket List | Battersea Arts Centre | 13 Feb-4 March
Set in the currently rather topical Mexico-US borderlands, ‘Bucket List’ tells the story of Milagros, whose mother is murdered for protesting corporate and government corruption, and who is determined to make those responsible pay for their crimes. This one’s already had much critical acclaim and is the work of the brilliant Theatre Ad Infinitum. See the BAC website here for more.

How (Not) To Live In Suburbia | Soho Theatre | 13-18 Feb
Our reviewer in Edinburgh last summer loved this show. And the one above, too, actually. Yes, same reviewer. True story. Anyway, this is a witty, engaging, funny show with serious themes and dollops of heartbreaking poignancy, and is all about when artist Annie Siddons found herself “living in suburbia by accident”. Head this way for details.

Pat-A-Cake Baby | Jacksons Lane | 12-13 Feb
Look, a lovely show for your little ones, based on the award winning book written by by Joyce Dunbar and illustrated by Polly Dunbar. Promises “a marvellous moonlit show full of riotous rhyme, zany puppets and spiffy special cake, all iced with music and songs”, so that sounds appetising, doesn’t it? Might go on my own. See this page here for info.
