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

Juniper And Jules | Theatre503 | 18-19 Mar (pictured)
“Juniper has liked girls, only girls, for as long as she can remember. Jules didn’t realize she could like girls because no one ever told her it was an option. After meeting at a loud and boring party, Juniper and Jules soon fall in lust and in love.” A promising sounding play from Stephanie Martin (you might have seen her full length debut ‘Joy’ which premiered at Theatre Royal Stratford East Studio in the autumn, not least because we told you to) about a couple exploring the possibilities of polyamory.

LOVE?! A Catastrophic 21st Century Guide on Relationships | Old Red Lion Theatre | 18-19 Mar
This is also about love (did the title give it away?) but from different angle. A new play by Chloé Wipraechtiger, it’s a comedy about six friends living in a flat share in London, which seems like a familiar set up, but it’s one with a lot to give. It seems as though the whole tale takes place on one night at a club, when all of a sudden the friends’  relationships are thrown into chaos. See the venue website here for info.

Gráinne Maguire: I Call My Vagina The Psychopath Test | Vault Festival | 18 Mar
Yes, yes, that’s right, you can hear the sound of me weeping, for lo, we have reached the end of the Vault Festival, and this is our final pick from it. But now, I will stop weeping, think about the good times, and just be glad we’ve such a great show to go out with a bang on. The fabulous Gráinne Maguire, whose work you are already no doubt aware of, presents a lovely new show. It’s a big and enthusiastic hurrah from me. Click here for details.
