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

The Golden F**king Years | Jack Studio | 17-29 Apr
“Helen and Gordon spend their retirement on their Mediterranean balcony, reading and drinking gin, quite a lot of it. Both have moments of dissatisfaction. Is this life changing or merely boredom brought on by age and inactivity? When a younger woman appears in their lives, their comfortable existence is blown apart in an unexpected fashion. Sex, alcohol and physical mayhem have dangerous repercussions for all.” A new play with an interesting focus, which also promises to be funny. See this page here for details.

The Class Project | Camden People’s Theatre | 20-21 Apr (pictured)
The brilliant Rebecca Atkinson-Lord’s her first solo show, about all things class-related: belonging, tribes and families, the things and places that are “in your blood”, and those you change yourself to try and identify with, class mobility, and regional identity. Expect good things, and book your tickets here.

Moormaid | Arcola Theatre | 18 Apr-19 May
“Berlin. Eleven past eleven. Art teacher Melissa is about to do something drastic. Seeking a place to hide, her ex-pupil Mehdi interrupts her momentum. Both embark on a turbulent journey, painting and battling their way through the past.” Another new play, described as “explosive”, tackling some of the fears taking precedence for contemporary Europe, and the possible threat from alienated and disaffected youth.
