(Pre and/or) post 8pm…


Laugh presents… Sara Pascoe, Ivo Graham, Ginglik, 19 Feb
The always watchable Sara Pascoe and Ivo Graham find comic accompaniment in chatterbox Tom Allen, Sofie Hagen and MC Hal Cruttenden. A resplendent rabble, if there ever was one. Details and tickets here.


Bottleneck, Soho Theatre, 19 Feb – 9 Mar
Hailed as one of the most promising playwrights at last year’s Fringe, Luke Barnes scripts a timely and trenchant take on the 1989 Hillsborough disaster, taking heart amid the horror. No easy thing. Details and tickets here.

Coalition, Pleasance Theatre, 19 Feb – 10 Mar (pictured)
This pithy political satire on the imagined last days of a waning Lib Dem/Conservative co-stars Thom Tuck as LD leader Matt Cooper  and, on the other side of the coalition coin, Phill Jupitus as blue-blooded Tory MP Sir Francis Whitford. “Concise, original and very funny”, says ThreeWeeks. (And we also spoke to Thom and Phill about the show at last year’s Fringe). Details and tickets here.
