We Are The Lions Mr Manager! | Tara Theatre | 21-25 Nov (pictured)
“What you are running here is not a factory, it is a zoo. But in a zoo there are many types of animals. Some are monkeys who dance on your fingertips, others are lions who can bite your head off. We are the lions, Mr. Manager!” The story of the late Jayaben Desai, leader of the 1976-78 Grunwick Film Processing Factory Strike, as told by the excellent Townsend Productions. See this page here for details.

Wild Bore | Soho Theatre | 21 Nov-16 Dec
Three immense talents – Zoe Coombs Marr, Ursula Martinez, and Adrienne Truscott – get their arses out in the name of entertainment and sticking it to the critics; or, as my reviewer put it when he saw it in Edinburgh this summer “interrogating the relationship between artist and critic in the patriarchal framework of contemporary theatre”. It’s a super show, and won a lot of edfringe love, so don’t miss your London chance to see it. Click here for more.

The End Of History | Tristan Bates Theatre | 14 Nov-2 Dec
A new musical about a group of teenagers attempting to deal with both puberty and the events of the 20th century – The Treaty of Versailles, the fall of the Berlin Wall, and so on. Sounds like the music is influenced by the different periods referenced, which seems promising to me, plus it’s from the same team that brought you the well-received ‘Blair On Broadway’. Info right about here.
