Today in London: Monday 18 March 2013

With the fact that today is Biodiesel Day in mind, we’ve filled the TW London tank with the following well-oiled and culturally-sustainable comic/music options…


Spymonkey’s Cooped, Leicester Square Theatre, 18-23 Mar (pictured)
Comic AD of ‘One Man, Two Guvnors’ Cal McCrystal directs this dark romance, as the beautiful and fawn-like Laura du Lay takes a job as a PA at a gothic mansion. One thing is certain, and that’s that ThreeWeeks loved it at the Edinburgh Fringe. Details and tickets here.


Driving Miss Daisy, Churchill Theatre, 18-23 Mar
Don Warrington of ‘Rising Damp’ fame stars as the affable African American chauffer (as opposed, obviously, to the play’s eponymous elderly Jewish lady) as this roving re-tread of of Alfred Uhry’s Pulitzer-winning fave steers its way to the Churchill stage. Details and tickets here.

Surprises, Richmond Theatre, 18-23 Mar
Playwright and national treasure Sir Alan Ayckbourn scripts (and directs) his new set-piece circa 2012, a fantastical sci-fi rom com whose emotional dramas transpire in a space-age era of paranoid androids and starship troopers. Details and tickets here.
