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

Our Big Love Story | The Hope Theatre | 20 Mar-7 Apr
“How does it feel to be a British Muslim? How does it feel to be a teenager in a world with conflicting messages and trying to fit in?” A play depicting the lives of five people, their stories intertwining, exploring themes of faith, prejudice, love and healing, the radicalisation of young people, and the struggle to keep your faith following trauma. For more information, see the venue website here.

Well, it’s sad that Vault Festival is over, but hurrah, Sprint 2018, CPT’s festival of the new and adventurous, still has a few more days to run. Struggling to know how to adequately convey what to expect from this particular show, but it sounds very promising: it’s a mixture of theatre, sketch comedy and audience interaction that threatens to tell a surreal tale, a bizarre space adventure, from the perspective of a pair of lonely clones. See this page here for details.

Three Sisters | Jack Studio | 20 Mar-14 Apr
“In a rural backwater, three sisters dream of a better life and of returning to the Moscow of their childhood. Irina longs for purpose, Masha for passion and Olga for some peace.” Yes, you probably already know the plot, and may be well acquainted with the beloved Chekhov tragicomedy. But that might be all the more reason why you’d want to see this staging of it, especially as it’s by a much critically acclaimed theatre company. Head this way to book.
