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

Windows | Finborough Theatre | 22 Aug-9 Sep
“In the aftermath of the First World War, Britain is left questioning the relevance of the ideals and values for which it fought, but which society seems to have forgotten. When writer Geoffrey March proposes to his family that they employ a young woman with a questionable past as their new maid, his high-minded ideals are suddenly challenged by those around him.” John Galsworthy’s 1922 “comedy for idealists” gets an airing – see the venue website here for more info.

Mrs Oscar Wilde | Cecil Sharp House | 22-23 Aug
Actress and writer Lexi Wolfe stars in this one woman presentation about Constance Lloyd, the feminist, writer and mother better known as the wife of the notorious Oscar Wilde. Her story sounds interesting in its own right, so it seems fitting that this show has been created about her. We’re back at Camden Fringe for this one, see this page here for all the details.

Richard III | Temple Church | 22 Aug – 9 Sep (pictured)
The always excellent Antic Disposition bring their latest production to the atmospheric Temple Church following a tour of six historic UK cathedrals, and I am pretty much desperate to see it. Expect a fantastic staging of the Shakespeare classic, and click this link here for all the information and to book.
