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

Thrill Me – The Leopold and Loeb Story | Arcola Theatre | 29 Aug-2 Sep (pictured)
We are close to the end of Arcola’s Grimeborn season, but look, one more show to take in before it’s all over. And it’s the return of ‘Thrill Me’, the award-winning and hugely critically acclaimed musical about 1920s thrill killers Leopold and Loeb. We first came across it up at the Edinburgh Festival a few years ago, and it’s excellent. See this page here for info.

Hyem | Theatre503 | 30 Aug-23 Sep
“Everyone says Mick and Sylv’s is dangerous. So why does Dummey think it feels so much like home?” Possibly because his own home – in the Fountain Park estate, Northumberland, voted the second worst estate to live in Britain 1992 – doesn’t. Established actor Philip Correia’s debut play is about lost kids, with nowhere to go, coming of age in an uncertain world, click here for details.

Tom Ballard – Problematic | Soho Theatre | 29 Aug-9 Sep
The blurb doesn’t say much about the content of the show, not least because it basically consists of this sentence: “a funny show about whether anything can be funny any more.” But this show has already had lots of good reviews, and it’s the work of someone with a lot of award nominations to his name. Head this way to book your tickets.
