Adam Kay

Hey, here’s a thing to do sandwich into the black Saturday hole that is 2-5pm; board a Thamesian boat trip tracing ‘News From Nowhere’, William Morris’s 1890-dated vision of London as he imagined it’d be in the 2100s. Dr Gregor Claude will lead a talk on the text and its artistic, political and technological utopian arcs, and a river of refreshments shall be served. Details of that here, and of alternative/late(r)-night arts pastimes here…


Adam Kay And Enemies, Pleasance Theatre Islington, 22 Jun – 27 Sep (pictured)
Bawdy singer-of-song Adam Kay may have one over this ThreeWeeks reviewer with his and his band, the Amateur Transplants’ ‘Bum Notes’ circa 2012, but he still has his haters. Tonight, to his (and their) chagrin, he’s sharing a stage with several. Details and tickets here.

Max & Ivan – The Reunion, Etcetera Theatre, 22 Jun
Looking to improve on their 4/5 ThreeWeeks-rated last Fringe show, ‘Are Con Artists’, spivvy sketch impressarios Max & Ivan lock themselves in a room with their one-time class of 2003, looking back on the births, deaths and gender reassignments that’ve made the ten years since graduation so very, very special. Details and tickets here.


Theatre-Rites presents… Bank On It, Rose Lipman Building, 22 Jun – 14 Jul
Created by Theatre-Rites especially for aspiring mini financiers, this Beyond Barbican-backed kids’ show is an interactive and fantastical trip into an imaginary bank; an “irresistible realm inspired by fairy tales” and featuring a cast of flyaway characters. So, pretty far from a real bank. Details and tickets here.
