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

Even The Stones | Jacksons Lane | 26-28 Jun
“Even the stones placed in your path can be made into something beautiful” says Goethe. This is a show about confronting and transforming the obstacles we find in our way, performed by the 14 graduating students of the National Centre for Circus Arts, directed by Charlotte Mooney and Tina koch from the utterly brilliant Ockham’s Razor. Expect “strength, skill, risk and vulnerability alongside seven men, seven women and 700kg of stones” and get your tickets booked right about here.

The Start Of Something | Theatre503 | 26-30 Jun
“When Amy finds a letter, lost and forgotten under her floorboards, she becomes obsessed with finding the unknown recipient. But in doing so, she sets in motion a chain of events which resurfaces a long forgotten secret. As three women tell their stories, we begin to realise none of their lives will ever be the same again.” This play from award-winning playwright Jamie Lakritz promises to be moving and funny, see this page here for more.

Britney | Battersea Arts Centre | 26-27 Jun (pictured)
We first heard about this comedy duo when they appeared at the Edinburgh Fringe with their debut sketch show back in 2016, and won oodles of critical praise and word-of-mouth buzz. This is, I believe (correct me if I am wrong) a re-run of that acclaimed first hour, and if you didn’t manage to catch it previously, then hurrah, here’s your chance. Lovely, see the venue website here for details.
