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

Mosaic | Arcola Theatre | 16-19 Aug
Hurrah for Grimeborn, for lo, Arcola Theatre’s strand of bold and interesting opera continues, and this I’m especially interested in. ‘Mosaic’ is a programme within the festival designed to platform and celebrate Black and Asian opera makers in the UK, telling stories yet to be seen and heard in contemporary Britain. “From West Africa to Armenia to ancient China and beyond, hear opera traditions from around the world mixed with jazz, Chinese orchestra, edgy contemporary classical and more.” More here.

Tom Binns is Unbelievable | Soho Theatre | 15-18 Aug (pictured)
Renowned character comedian Tom Binns, creator and star of BBC One’s ‘Hospital People’, who won our hearts in the guise of Hospital radio DJ Ivan Brackenbury and did everything to keep possession of them as Ian D Montfort, is probably known to you all through his live performance and TV appearances. According to the blurb, he’s spent years mastering cold reading so he can spoof the spirit mediums, and I’m presuming that’s relevant to the content of the show. Anyway, he is excellent, get your tickets here.

Fourth Monkey’s Scandal Season – Bombshells | The Monkey House | 16-26 Aug
“Evris Mann was on the verge of pushing Hollywood into a new age. When he dies suddenly, the stars of Hollywood attend his memorial dinner and a string of bombshells are dropped in his wake. A new era is about to unfold, but as the sun sets on the life of Evris Mann, will the women of silent stardom find their voices?” Another offering from Camden Fringe for you. See the festival website here for more info.
