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

Sod’s Law | Old Red Lion Theatre | 18 Jul
“Join Lord Hicks for a musical romp through queer history. Armed with his instrument, rapier wit and lashings of sass, his Lordship will recount the laws, legends and liaisons that have shaped what it is to be gay. Born with a silver spoon in his mouth and educated on the mean streets of Soho, cabaret star Lord Hicks has travelled the world serenading audiences from Paris to Reykjavik with classic anthems and original songs.” A pick from Old Red Lion Theatre’s season of Edinburgh previews, see this page here for info, and links to other previews on there this month.

Honey | The Cockpit | 18-20 Jul (pictured)
‘Honey’ tells the story of a young man with autism, his mother, and her tattoo artist sister, as well as “those that want to love them”, and explores the break down of community and the way our environments – and our minds – change as time goes on. It’s for adults, but the information here suggests that it might be a nice show for younger people, too. See the venue website here for details.

Cherry Blossom | The Bunker Theatre | 18-20 Jul
Catherine Grosvenor’s acclaimed 2008 play, written in both English and Polish and exploring migration and identity, staged as one of the Drama Studio London’s graduation shows. “Fast-forward to Scotland; windswept beaches, pig-processing factories, bedsits with mushrooms in the carpet, Grazyna realises that back in Poland, her family are falling apart.” See this page here for more.
