Three To See on 6 Mar: Stuffed, Abducting Diana, Corpus Christi

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

Stuffed | Jack Studio | 6-17 Mar
“Kim and Jack are trying for a baby. Trying pretty hard. Their friends are having kids left, right and centre. A small army of doctors offer well-meaning advice but no actual answers. And nobody’s getting any younger… But the further they go, the more they start to wonder, what is this all for?” This sounds like a promising new comedy about fertility and why we make the choices we make. See the venue website here for more.

Abducting Diana | Hen & Chickens Theatre | 6-17 Mar
Theatre of Heaven and Hell present this production of Dario Fo’s 1986 play (‘Abducting Francesca’ in the original Italian version), in which a millionaire magnate is kidnapped – but who exactly has done the kidnapping, and why exactly has it happened? Who will turn out to be in control of the situation? As with anything from Fo, I’ll expect comedy and buffoonery with satirical and political bite, staged by a company with good previous form. See this page here for details.

Corpus Christi | Arcola Theatre | 5-10 Mar (pictured)
Another recommendation from the previously tipped Creative/Disruption 18 season at Arcola, this time a revival of Terrence McNally’s well known passion play, first staged in New York back in 1998. As you’ll have noticed, that’s a whole twenty years ago (crikey, that makes me feel old), making this an anniversary production, and it’s brought to you by the Arcola Queer Collective.
