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

The Plague | Arcola Theatre | 30 Aug-29 Sep
This retelling of Albert Camus’ 1947 story ‘La Peste’ by director Neil Bartlett won much acclaim when first staged last year, and now is back for a four week run. Which is great news for anyone who regrets not seeing it the first time around. As you might expect from the title, it tells the story of a plague sweeping through a city, and how those affected live through this time of crisis, and fight the despair of that situation.

Yana Alana – Between The Cracks | Soho Theatre | 28 Aug-8 Sep (pictured)
“Yana Alana’s divine and deluded career comeback is spiralling out of control. The only two of her band members that haven’t been sacked or fled are inscrutable and unhelpful. The Costume Designer has pulled off an ‘Emperor’s New Clothes’ heist, and the Xanax is wearing off. Yana Alana is having ‘an episode’!” A slightly scary looking but award-winning and acclaimed show that you should absolutely definitely see. Info here.

Trilogy Of Horrors | Old Red Lion Theatre | 30 Aug
You’d be forgiven for thinking it was October but I assure you, it’s not yet. However, I don’t see that’s reason not to partake of some scary storytelling, we don’t have to wait for Hallowe’en. Anyway, that’s what this is – three chilling tales by classy writers: ‘The Signal Man’ by Charles Dickens, ‘The Mortal Immortal’ by Mary Shelley and ‘The Tell-Tale Heart’ by Edgar Allen Poe. Bwa ha ha. Head this way for all the details.
