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

Translunar Paradise | The Bunker Theatre | 31 Aug-2 Sep (pictured)
This show by the extraordinary Theatre Ad Infinitum has won so much praise over the years, I’d be surprised if you hadn’t seen it already. But there will be those that haven’t, and many, I am sure, who wouldn’t mind seeing it again. It’s poignant and beautiful, and despite focusing on bereavement, grief and letting go, it’s genuinely life-affirming. See the venue website here for more.

Urzila Carlson – First Edition | Soho Theatre | 29 Aug-2 Sep
This New Zealand based comedian stops in at the Soho Theatre following a full run up at this year’s Edinburgh Festival (with barely a rest in between, that’s dedication). This summer was her Fringe debut but don’t make the mistake of thinking she’s inexperienced, she’s been selling out southern hemisphere venues for years. See this page here for all the info.

Outlaws To In-Laws | King’s Head Theatre | 29 Aug -23 Sep
Part of the venue’s 2017 Queer Season, ‘Outlaws To In-Laws’ is a collection of seven short plays exploring gay lives against the backdrop of changing times, each piece set in a different decade, starting with the 1950s and finishing in the present day. Love this idea. Click here for details.
