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

Hold | Theatre503 | 18-19 Nov
“In a small country pub with a failing music system and sticky floors, Marc sits quietly as instructed. Adam, his partner, is telling Marc’s parents that their son is gay. The conversation is blunt, monstrous and painfully funny. It does not go well and Marc is left without parents to turn to. Perhaps that’s what Adam wanted.” A rehearsed reading of an in-development piece that sounds really rather interesting.

Caravan Of Dreams | The Hope Theatre | 18-19 Nov (pictured)
Some lovely sounding storytelling for you: “Rumi is in love. Hafez is drunk – again. Kabir is lost in the market place, waiting for The Guest to arrive. A caravan is departing friends! It is departing for the East! It is a Caravan of Dreams. So climb on board for a psychedelic journey into the heart of the Arabian Dreamtime. Expect flying horses, floating palaces, a smattering of Sufi verses and one very insistent pair of slippers.” see the venue website here for more.

The Mould That Changed The World | Ovalhouse | 19 Nov
“Alexander Fleming’s death-defying, worldly wonder antibiotic drugs have saved us for the last 90 years. But with bacterial resistance growing, doomsday approaches. What better way to fight back than with a musical of epic proportions?” This new musical has a sell out run up in Edinburgh in the summer of 2018, and is on at Ovalhouse to coincide with World Antibiotics Awareness Week 2018.
