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

Child’s Play | New Diorama | 16 Nov
“An examination of why it is Millennials seem to be so convinced no-one’s really listening, and why they hate the label, ‘Child’s Play’ punctuates the re-telling of a protest with explosive spoken word interrogations of what it means to be 20-something, over-educated, and suspicious of almost everything.” I think folks are unnecessarily critical of that generation, and I’m fed up of seeing those headlines that imply that they are ruining everything. So this caught my eye, see this page here for all the details.

Binaural Dinner Date | Theatre Royal Stratford East | 16 Nov-3 Nov
This also caught my eye, but to be frank, it’s the sort of scenario that would make me run a mile. But you lot, reading this, you’re not me, and I reckon some of you might be very, very interested. Part interactive performance, part dating agency, ‘Binaural Dinner Date’ invites genuine applications from individuals looking for love, or existing couples who want a different sort of a dating experience. Don’t forget to let them know your dating preferences when you book. See the venue website here for more.

Tanja | Camden People’s Theatre | 15-18 Nov (pictured)
“This is what she would have said, if only we’d let her.” Described as an “impassioned call to arms, a play and a campaign”, this is a theatrical exploration of immigration detention centres and it stars a former Yarl’s Wood detainee, Emily Ntshangase-Wood. There are a lot of plays around at the moment dealing with immigration, all good, but this will surely have an extra special resonance with a performer with such relevant experience at its heart.
