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

What Words Are Ours? | Roundhouse | 29 Jun (pictured)
Yes, more Last Word Festival for you, and it’s a goodie: “A tongue-twisting, thigh-slapping, tear-jerking variety show that will make you think and feel” starring activist Chloë Florence, playwright and slam champion Kat François, rising star Koko Brown, David Cumming aka Cheryl Dole, Zia Ahmed, who will be creating poetry on the night using words gathered from the audience, and BSL-using poet Zoë McWhinney. See this page here for more.

Tessa Coates – Primates | Soho Theatre | 26-30 Jun
“Tessa has an absolutely useless degree in Anthropology and some very big questions about how we got here.” She’s also one third of rather successful sketch troupe Massive Dad and has lots of live and TV appearances under her belt. This is her debut solo show, which did very well at the old edfringe. See this page here for all the info.

Breakfast | New Diorama | 29 Jun
More from Incoming now, and this intriguing show: “A story about love. A man and a woman sit down to breakfast in late-1940s Paris. Comedic and touching, ‘Breakfast’ is inspired by the poetry of Jacques Prévert and the silent films of Buster Keaton. This is a nostalgic story about courtship and loss, told without a single word, scored live by piano and accordion.” Sounds delicious, details here.
