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

Statements | King’s Head Theatre | 14-15 Jan
I tipped this previously, and now it’s returning after a successful premiere, and I am tipping it again because I think it’s an important topic probably not addressed as well and as much as it could be in culture and media. It tackles Asperger’s and Downs Syndrome, and offers an exploration of the world of special educational needs and the lives of those of those affected by them. Click here for info.

Luca Cupani – It’s Me | The Bill Murray | 14 Jan (pictured)
This is the show Luca Cupani performed in Edinburgh last summer, I believe, and I heard good things about it, even if I didn’t manage to see it myself. So I am recommending it to you. If you haven’t come across this talented chap before, then I should possibly tell you that he’s a past winner of the ‘So You Think You’re Funny’ competition, and has much critical acclaim to his credit. See the venue website here for more.

100 Ways The Fire Starts | Theatre503 | 14-15 Jan
“Bella and Leon are having a party, Apocalypse themed. The world is supposed to end tonight. But as the games get more dangerous, fires start, gun men storm the building, and they begin to question what is real and what is not.” This play exploring our fetishisation of apocalyptic themes and the use of them in popular culture was first produced at Theatre503’s Rapid Write Response, then developed into a full-length production as part of the National Theatre’s Playwright’s Development Programme.
