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

Lucy Aphramor – The Naked Dietitian | Hackney Showroom | 8 Jul (pictured)
One for you lovers of spoken word poetry, and possibly those who don’t know they love it yet. Acclaimed performance poet and radical dietitian (she believes we need to make fundamental changes in how we talk about lifestyle, health and justice) Lucy Aphramor addresses topics such as clean eating, identity, privilege, queerness, community, and resilience in what’s described as a “viscerally, spiritually, intellectually and emotionally compelling refusal to sign-up to a post-truth whitewash”.

Summer In London | Theatre Royal Stratford East | 8-29 Jul
A new romantic comedy about a woman called Summer, who finds herself on the receiving end of attention from four broke and homeless suitors, who each try to get her attention in cost free ways. “We follow the streetwise romeos on boat rides, to museums, parks and firework displays as they try to win their date”, runs the blurb. “As the sun sets and the drinks flow things get complicated, and we discover nothing is as it first appears.” For info, see the venue website here.

Arna Spek – Museum Peice | Museum Of Comedy | 8 Jul
Like Lucy Aphramor, mentioned above, Dutch comedian Arna Spek is headed to the Edinburgh Fringe this summer, but before that, she’s performing her show at the aptly-named-on-this-occasion Museum Of Comedy. In this set she addresses the question of whether she can survive as an EU citizen in 21st Century post Brexit Britain. For details, see this page here.
