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

The State Of Things | Jack Studio Theatre | 7-23 Sep
This new musical by Thomas Attwood & Elliot Clay is set against the backdrop of austerity Britain and is about six teenagers who, in the run up to their GCSE performance, discover that their school’s music course is being cut, therefore dashing any hope they have of studying the subject in the future. See the venue website here for info.

The Night Pirates | Rose Theatre Kingston | 6-16 Sep (pictured)
“One night, young Tom is awoken by noises outside his house. He peeps out of the window and what should he see but pirates…” I think most of the big kids have gone back to school by now, but here’s one for your pre-schoolers, based on the well known book by Peter Harris and Deborah Allwright and adapted and directed by Miranda Larson.

Nassim Plays | Bush Theatre | 7-16 Sep
In a celebration of the output of Iranian theatre-maker Nassim Soleimanpour, Bush Theatre are staging all four of his plays, repertory style. You’re probably familiar with his work, but if you are not, his shows are never prepared: a sealed script is given to different actor for each performance, and said actor performs an entirely unrehearsed reading. For details of all the plays and the schedule, see this page here.
