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

The Cloakroom Attendant | Tristan Bates Theatre | 30 Jul-4 Aug
So, let’s start our day of tips over at the lovely Camden Fringe, and Dimitra Barla’s autobiographical one-woman show ‘The Cloakroom Attendant’. It’s about Margot, the titular cloakroom attendant of a national museum, who entertains the audience with her daily stories, while exploring the unavoidable dilemma of whether or not to be a parent. “With wit and sensitivity, artefacts become alive and visitors take mythical dimensions. Dante’s condemned lovers, an unfortunate French queen and an inquisitive boy help Margot balance on a suspended world of imagination, aspirations and self-fulfillment.” See this page here for details.

Little Angel By The Sea | Little Angel Theatre | 13 Jul-5 Aug
“Windbreakers, brollies and sandcastles! There’s no guarantee of a rain free summer in London, but the sun always shines at our theatre. We’ve given a breath of salty sea air to Punch & Judy… Hang on, someone has stolen all the sausages!! Was it the crocodile with his gnashing jaw? The baby with her butter-wouldn’t-melt smile? Or was it someone else altogether?” We’re down to a last couple of chances to see this immersive puppetry and puppetry experience. Great for kiddies who need to be entertained over the summer. Head this way for more.

A Fantastic Bohemian | Arcola Theatre | 4-12 Aug
Another offering from Grimeborn, and well… this sounds fabulous – a unique and immersive opera experience, performed across three spaces at Arcola Theatre, based on Jacques Offenbach‘s ‘The Tales of Hoffman’, it’s an English language production that transports you to Mexico City in the Golden Cinema Age of the 1940s. “Join the great bohemian artist Hoffmann, on a journey to uncover the mysteries of his three lost loves.” See this page here.
