Oh gawd, it’s Honesty Day, an idea that may fill many with dread. Fortunately, TW London has no issue with being candid, which is why we’re sharing this bona fide admission of London’s most genuine cultural truths…


The Schadenfreude Sessions present… Aisling Bea/Chris Mayo/Birthday Girls/Bob & Jim/Harriet Kemsley/Hatty Ashdown, The Harrison, 30 Apr
So it’s all quite straightforward at tonight’s Schadenfreude lock-in; a known quantity of comics – “sparkling” Irishlady Aisling Bea, high-wired anxiety addict Chris Mayo, quirky trio Birthday Girls and gor blimey mimes Bob & Jim – giving their all to get a laugh. Details and tickets here.


Voices For Choice (Dignity In Dying), Union Chapel, 30 Apr
A night of literary contemplation (whatever your stance on the Campaign For Dignity In Dying) Voices For Choice will feature readings by one-time Poet Laureate Andrew Motion, writers Joe Dunthorne and John Osborne, actress Susan Hampshire, and a Q&A with Sir Terry Pratchett. Details and tickets here.


A Day In The Death Of Joe Egg, Rose Theatre, 30 Apr – 18 May (pictured)
Ralph Little plays teacher Bri, a man striving to take the strain of raising a disabled child, in this poignant black sitcom. Stephen Unwin who has a son with a disability in real life, directs. Holding on to those heartstrings might be wise. Details and tickets here.
