The Road That Wasn’t There | The Albany | 9-10 Jun
“In New Zealand, there are some 56,000 kilometres of paper roads – streets and towns that exist only on surveyors’ maps. Or do they? A young woman strays from the beaten track and finds herself in a paper world. It seems to be a land of possibility, but she soon discovers that things that happen in the fictional world can have frighteningly real consequences.” Our reviewer was rather blown away by this brilliant production at last year’s Edinburgh Festival, so don’t miss this chance to see it, head right this way right now to book tickets.

Violence | The Place | 9 Jun
FK Alexander is the creator of this performance art piece, described as “a meditation on the cruelty of love, the weight of loneliness, the gift of desperation, the freedom of anxiety, the chrysalis of hopelessness, and the power of dreams.” It’s part of the three day Splayed Festival, which is focused on questioning conventional ideas about femininity. Find information about everything that’s on as part of that here, and about this particular show, ‘Violence’, here.

Twayna Mayne – Black Girl | Soho Theatre | 7-9 Jun (pictured)
Tonight’s your last night to see Twayna Mayne in action over at the Soho Theatre, so please don’t miss this talented up and coming comedian, Leicester Mercury nominee a couple of years ago, and the recipient of many a glowingly-worded review by highly discerning culture critics. This is the debut hour that’s won her lots of acclaim, so you know you can expect a quality evening’s entertainment. For all the details hie ye hence to the venue website here.
