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

Medicine | The Hope Theatre | 14 Aug-1 Sep
“One howling night in Northern Ireland, Ma discovers Moira on the edge of Warrenpoint pier, full of cheap whiskey and desperate to end it all… Is it too late to bring her daughter home?” This play by award-winning playwright Meghan Tyler is described as a “quick-witted tragi-comedy” that explores a rather complex thing – the relationship between a mother and her daughter – and deals with the thorny topic of mental ill health. See this page here for info and to book.

With Child | Soho Theatre | 14-15 Aug
Oh, and talking of mothers, here are some more, in this talking-heads style show: “Inspired by society’s expectations and the pressures on women to be maternal, kind, considerate individuals. There is one thing these women share, they are all pregnant, however they rarely refer to this – but do we as an audience judge them differently because of their impending motherhood”. Head this way for details.

Sunshine | Theatre503 | 14-16 Aug
“All Mr Sand wanted to do was relax and enjoy the breeze of the sea air on his skin and the sunshine on his face. Simple pleasures. However, he did not know that he would have to share the beach with someone else. Let’s just say Mr Sand’s day was about to be turned upside down and inside out. Caught up in the whirl pool of Mr Sea’s chaos Mr Sand does everything he can to get a bit of peace and quiet.” This looks fun, an interactive clowning show suitable for all but the very little ones.
