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

John Luke Roberts’ Terrible Wonderful Adaptations – Christmas Special | Soho Theatre | 14 Dec
If you are wondering what to expect from a ‘Terrible Wonderful Adaptation’, allow me to explain, via the medium of quoting from the blurb: “JLR wrangles an all-star cast of the best comedians and worst idiots into creating a never-before-seen adaptation of an unadaptable text. Previous catastrophic attempts include Francis Fukuyama’s discredited political treatise ‘The End of History’, post-structuralist Roland Barthes’ ‘A Lover’s Discourse’, the iTunes Terms and Conditions, ‘Ulysses’ and ‘Á la Recherche du Temps Perdu’. ” No word yet on what will get the treatment for this festive edition, but whatever it is, you’ll enjoy it. Book here.

Can’t Wait For Christmas | Orange Tree Theatre | 14 Dec-5 Jan (pictured)
“Jessie’s dad has brought her a lovely little present. It’s all wrapped up, and tied with a beautiful bow. She can’t wait to open it, but she isn’t allowed to until Christmas day. Jessie shakes it and sniffs it and tries to sneak a peek, but Dad puts it just out of her reach and keeps a close eye on it.” Lovely sounding show for you with little ones aged three plus. “Join in Jessie’s countdown to Christmas as she delights in all the festive treats that appear behind her advent calendar windows.” Yay. Details here.

Green Milk Presents Good Bois | Bethnal Green Working Men’s Club | 14 Dec
Hurrah for a comedy night with a great line up, and hurrah even more that it’s for a lovely cause. Green Milk are running this particular event with a view to raising as much money as possible for animal charity Blue Cross. MC Robin Jon Hill hosts a bunch of verified TW favourites: Adam Riches , Abandoman, Norris & Parker, Olaf Falafel, and Fern Brady. All the info and tickets right here.
