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

Shazia Mirza – The Kardashians Made Me Do It | Tricycle Theatre | 24 Sep-3 Oct (pictured)
It seems like an unlikely title for a show about Jihadi brides, but all will be revealed. Shazia Mirza’s latest show seems like it’s her most serious and most politicised yet, and it’s won a fair bit of acclaim during its ‘work in progress’ showings. You can see our recent q&a with her here, and you can find out more info about the show and book tickets here.

Bloodletting | Bread and Roses Theatre | 24-26 Sep
Did you know there was a thing called the Clapham Fringe? Well, there is, and it’s happening this month at the Bread and Roses theatre. ‘Bloodletting’ sounds like one of the highlights, not least because it’s the winner of the 2015 Bread and Roses playwriting competition, but also because it’s got a very interesting concept set in a dystopian near-future at its heart. See more info and book right here.

Mike Aremu | Canada Water Culture Space | 24 Sep
Mike Aremu is on as part of the fabulous, musically and culturally diverse London African Music Festival, taking place from 18-27 Sep. In fact, there’s so much good stuff on, that in all honesty, I really struggled to narrow it down to one choice. Mike Aremu won in the end because he fought off all the competition with his saxophone. Well, not literally, obviously; he didn’t beat them with it. He just played it beautifully. See more info on the whole festival here.
