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

Bones | King’s Head Theatre | 15 Oct
“19-year-old Mark lives in Highgate, a district of city-centre Birmingham, and exists from one DWP payment to the next. He cares for his drug-addict mum and her new-born baby, but the relationship is completely dysfunctional, as he is being forced to live a life he never signed up for. He seems to be willing to take desperate measures to change things forever. But how far will he go?” This offering from Gritty Theatre sounds suitably, er, gritty, and comes with nudity and language warnings, as well as acclaim following performances at the Edinburgh and Brighton Festivals, see this page here for more.

London Horror Festival 2017 | Old Red Lion | 15 Oct-4 Nov (pictured)
Great news for all you fans of gore out there, for lo, the London Horror festival returns for 2017 with a line up of great looking shows created by a plethora of talented beasts. It’s not so far off Hallowe’en, so don your scary mask (well, that’s optional, and possibly a bit odd, to be honest) and head this way to look at the long list of events and decide which ones you are going to see. Hurrah.

Miniaturists 65 | Arcola Theatre | 15 Oct
And finally, one of our favourite institutions presents its latest collection of short plays tonight at Arcola theatre, so as ever, I am excited. This month’s selection have been written by Zoe Hunter-Gordon, Margaret Perry, Callum Cameron, Luke Courtier and Sue Healy, and I would bet actual money that they’ll all be brilliant and punchy. See the venue website here for all the info.
