MacBeth | Wilton’s | 18 Jun-2 Jul (pictured)
Another ‘MacBeth’ over at Wilton’s (there was a different one we recommended back in Feb/Mar) and this is the work of the very brilliant and award winning Flabbergast Theatre, who bring their experience in physical theatre, puppetry, stage combat, clowning and mask work to this version of The Scottish Play featuring live music and bespoke human voice effects performed live by the ensemble. See this page here for info.

I Knew You | Roundhouse | 18-20 Jun
“Angela is edging closer to retirement. Then it will just be her, her cat and ready meals for one. Her son Nathan is struggling with being a stay-at-home dad. It’s not as if he’s had a role model for it. The closest he’s got to his dad in 20 years was a Google search. When Angela has a chance encounter with ‘her Patrick’, she is torn about whether or not to introduce him to the son he walked out on and the grandson he’s never met. But Patrick has some news that may force her to decide.” The latest play from spoken word artist and writer Polarbear, on as part of the much mentioned Last Word Festival. Details here.

Crick Crack Club – Crow Blood Snow | Soho Theatre 18 Jun
And more story-telling for you now in a different part of town, as Sally Pomme Clayton weaves forgotten folklore and fragments of myth from Ireland to Italy, Scandinavia to Siberia to create this tale. “Crow was there at the beginning… Crow warns of dangers, makes you  fall in love,  flies over the battlefield, brings the dead back to life, keeps the memories, counts time, waits for  doom, is the echo of the land itself.” Head this way for more.
