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

Insignificance | Arcola Theatre | 18 Oct-18 Nov
The first revival in more than twenty years for award-winning playwright Terry Johnson’s 1982 play, which, you may recall, was also made into a film in 1985. If you are too young to remember much about it, it focuses on interaction between characters representing four icons – Marilyn Monroe, Albert Einstein, Joe DiMaggio and Joseph McCarthy.

Incoming/Exodus | Camden People’s Theatre | 17-21 Oct (pictured)
An immersive and interactive experiential show, set in a world where a “new society is coming”, which asks its audience to take on the duties of immigration officers on behalf of a crumbling government. An interesting way to take a reflective look at what might happen in a post-Brexit, post-UK world. See the venue website here for more information.

Anything That Flies | Jermyn Street Theatre | 18 Oct-11 Nov
“The Berlin Wall has fallen. Reparations are being made to Jewish families. Germany has reunited. And in Belsize Park, Otto Huberman is listening to recordings of himself playing Brahms, when he is interrupted by a visitor who will turn his life upside down.” This new play by novelist Judith Burnley promises to be funny and provocative, and to explore the theme of what it means to be a “citizen of nowhere”.
