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

Motherlogues | Etcetera Theatre | 23-27 Aug
Having gone through the whole motherhood experience, and having got the sense that my experience of it was maybe not anything like what other people went through, I felt immediately attracted to this show, a series of monologues dealing with the issues of being a mum, not wanting to be a mum, and dealing with having a mum. Nice to get different perspectives, see this page here for more info about it.

Tim Heidecker & Neil Hamburger | Soho Theatre | 21 Aug-2 Sep
I must be honest, I am not hugely aware of the work of these two US comedians, but I have heard of them, of course, and am entirely sold on the idea of seeing this show because of their respective career histories. For more information and to book, click here.

Fun At The Festival | Arcola Theatre | 24-26 Aug
I thought I’d end the week with one last pick from Arcola’s excellent Grimeborn season, a selection of three shorter pieces: ‘The Telephone’ (‘L’amour a Trois’) by Gian Carlo Menotti. ‘Cox and Box’ by Arthur Sullivan and a new comic play, ‘Cycle’, about a neighbourly dispute over a bicycle.
