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

A David Greig Double Bill | Jermyn Street Theatre | 2-13 Aug
Well, you can’t go wrong with prolific, acclaimed playwright David Greig, can you? And it’s not just the one piece, you get two plays in return for leaving the house and heading over to Jermyn Street. The first is ‘Kyoto’, which has, as you might expect, a UN/political backdrop, and the second is ‘Letters Of Last Resort’, which you might have come across whilst listening to BBC Radio 4… See the venue website here for details.

Respect Existence Or Expect Resistance | Cockpit Theatre | 6 Aug (pictured)
This is our latest pick from the Camden Fringe, and it’s a presentation which will address resource colonisation, including uranium and coal mining, and the protection of sacred places, brought to you by Klee Benally, a Diné (Navajo) musician, traditional dancer, filmmaker and Indigenous anarchist engaged in a fight to retain a liveable and healthy world. See the venue website here.

Jay Foreman – Family Comedy #3 | Dalston Square | 6 Aug
This is one of four events – organised by Arcola Theatre and taking place in Dalston Square – featuring open air family friendly comedy over the course of the summer. I picked this one because I love Jay Foreman and so does my eight year old daughter: two years after seeing him perform a collection of often mildly gruesome and always hilarious songs, I still hear her singing them when she’s on her own in her room.
