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

Mount Vernon | King’s Head Theatre | 16-17 Sep
“Two strangers meet at an airport and start to talk. She’s been to Mount Vernon, he’s heard of it. But are they strangers? And why won’t he tell her his name? “ This well reviewed play by Rena Brennan, directed by Rikki Beadle Blair, offers “a real-time investigation into the heart of modern America with two people whose lives have been torn apart by the very thing that’s supposed to protect them.” See this page here for more.

Trump The Musical | Waterloo East Theatre | 11-23 Sep
And more with an American theme, this time the car-crash doings of the current US president. It’s a show that’s already had a sell out run at Vault festival, and promises an evening of original music and comedy presided over by a very terrible wig. “Time to make Donald Great Again! But will Putin work his cyber magic once more? And can King Nigel Farage the First of England get his trade deal?” Lol, head this way for info.

Bismillah – An Isis Tragicomedy | King’s Head Theatre | 16-17 Sep (pictured)
Back over to the King’s Head now then for another chance to see this award winning, acclaimed and sell out play that you have very probably already heard of. “‘Danny’ joined the Islamic State. One’s from Leeds, the other’s from London. Brought together in a holding cell in Northern Iraq, as captive and volatile guard. They discuss the North/South divide, reminisce about dead-end jobs they couldn’t escape, lampoon the outrageous ever increasing price of a standard airport meal deal – all the while circling an awful terrifying truth – that both of them just want to go home.” Details here.
