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

Colin Hoult/Anna Mann in How We Stop The Fascists | Soho Theatre | 25-30 Sep (pictured)
“Having effectively cured all depression in last year’s smash-hit hour, actress Anna Mann returns to take on the terrifying rise of fascism. Fear not, gentle liberals, Mother Mann is here.” Colin Hoult’s been a TW favourite for some years now, and this latest show garnered a resounding five star review when we sent one of our team to see it up in Edinburgh in the summer, so we can absolutely positively wholeheartedly recommend that you head this way and book a ticket.

Carl Donnelly et al | The Good Ship | 25 Sep
As ever, a fab line up for Monday night comedy at The Good Ship, this time headed by the very excellent Carl Donnelly, but to also include Ola (yes, if you’ve not come across him yet, it’s just that one name that he goes by), Fiona Ridgewell, Danny Clives, and of course, resident MC Ben Van Der Velde.

The Listening Room | Theatre Royal Stratford East | 18-30 Sep
We tipped this earlier in the year when it was on at the Old Red Lion, but I think it’s worth mentioning again because it’s a great idea, well executed, and thought-provoking, and has had a great critical response. It’s verbatim theatre, exploring life, death and justice and focusing on the true stories told by people whose lives were changed by acts of violence. For details, see the venue website here.
