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

Baby | The Cockpit | 19-20 Aug (pictured)
Back to Camden Fringe for a family show from Rhiannon Brace Dance. Aimed at those aged 3+ and their carers, it’s a dance theatre performance inspired by the choreographer’s experience of the birth of her son, and tells the story of that process. It promises a “toe-tapping playlist” to take you on this journey, and is followed by an on-stage disco for all. See this page here for info.

Loot | The Park Theatre | 17 Aug-24 Sep
Joe Orton’s classic farce gets an outing over at the Park Theatre in honour of the play’s fiftieth anniversary, directed by Michael Fentiman and featuring a variously experienced and/or promising cast and crew. For details and to book see the venue website here.

King Cowboy Rufus Rules The Universe | London Theatre Workshop | 14-26 Aug
This piece by playwright and avant garde theatre type Richard Foreman was first staged in New York back in 2004, and was created with an eye on then-president George W Bush. This UK premiere will reflect contemporary times, as the titular character is portrayed as an imitation Trump. See this page here for more.
