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

Doppeldänger | Battersea Arts Centre | 9-13 Oct
“With an uncanny blend of European 1630s-inspired retrofuturism and 1930s wrestling, Doppeldänger explores the boundaries between self and other, gig and theatre, and questions representations of femalehood on stage.” Expect experimental live music and Baroque-pop mash-ups, gender-twisting visuals and gothic storytelling from real-life doppelgängers Eugénie Pastor and Shamira Turner, see this page here for more.

Every Brilliant Thing | Orange Tree Theatre | 9-28 October (pictured)
Paines Plough’s internationally acclaimed show, written by by Duncan Macmillan with Jonny Donahoe, has its first major London run. A play about depression and the lengths we go to for those we love, and finding reasons to live rather than reasons to die. So many people have said so many good things about this – don’t miss this chance to see it, click here to book.

Desiree Burch – Unf*ckable | Soho Theatre | 9-14 Oct
Absolutely excellent, and hugely, hugely acclaimed, I’m worried, frankly, that you haven’t booked your tickets yet, because they might all be sold out by the time you get around to reading this. The brilliant Desiree Burch performs her show about sex, race and capitalism, which won oodles of praise up in Edinburgh this summer, and had everyone rolling on the floor laughing. See the venue website here for details.
