Regenerate | The Bunker Theatre | 25-26 Aug (pictured)
“What choices do we have when the seemingly unattainable is all we have left? The only option is new growth: regeneration.” An evening of dance, theatre and music brought you by Anthony Matsena and Amukelani Matsena in collaboration with playwrights Charlie Layburn and Shane David-Joseph and composers Stelios Antoniou and Lara Agar.

Lydia Hirst – I’ll Be Your Dog | Camden Comedy Club | 23-26 Aug
Hurry up, hurry up, go and immerse yourself in the Camden Fringe because it’s very nearly over! And you can start with this, not least because it has a slightly disconcerting dog picture in the listing, but also because it sounds good: “Arrested and kicked out of France, Lydia Hirst tells stories about refugees, migrants and anarchists. Back in London, its breadlines, activism and Wetherspoons. Like Orwell’s ‘Down and Out in Paris and London’ with jokes and a bit of techno.” Details are here.

Silk Road (How To Buy Drugs Online) | Trafalgar Studios | 20 Aug-1 Sep
“Meet Bruce Blakemore, a struggling young Geordie tech-head and the unlikeliest international criminal mastermind you can imagine. From his base in Whitley Bay, Bruce and his Nan will find themselves sucked into an Underworld Wide Web of new-age pirates, local gangsters and tea-cosies.” You might remember this play having a critically acclaimed run at The Vaults. Whether you do or not, definitely one to add to your to do list. Head this way for info and to book.
