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

Henna Night | White Bear Theatre | 16-20 Oct
A staging by Fabricate Theatre of Amy Rosenthal’s acclaimed 1999 play. “Judith leaves her ex-boyfriend a desperate message saying that she’s not coping with their break-up, that she has brought some razor blades and some henna in order to either slash her wrists or dye her hair. Oh and she might be pregnant. However, it is his new partner, Ros, who hears the message and it is she that rushes to Judith’s flat.” Details here.

Two Little Ducks | The Albany | 17-18 Oct (pictured)
Matt Abbott performed this personal and political show at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2017, receiving much critical acclaim for it, and we were very pleased to be able to talk to him about it: you can read our Q&A with him right about here, to find out more about the show itself, and you can head to this page here to book and to find out more about the supporting acts appearing with him.

The Watching | White Bear Theatre | 16-20 Oct
“It is 1644 and the Witchfinder has come to Glynwood. Grace Taverton returns to her home town with her brother and father William. When she is asked to help in the trial of a young woman she has no choice but to be part of a Watching – keeping her eyes fixed on the accused for hours on end. But the suspected Witch is known to Grace, and as the trial draws on she finds she is caught between conscience and duty. Can she come between the Witchfinder and his goal? Or will her actions lead her also to the gallows?” Scary times, see this page here for more.
