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

COMEDY: Beasts – Solo | Soho Theatre | 6-10 Jan (pictured)
Carried away by their recent big break on BBC Radio 4, three-man sketch menagerie Beasts decide they’re too brilliant to share the spotlight with each other, and vow to go it alone. What follows is too many solo shows, packed into too little time, and a lot of squabbling. Details and tickets here.

THEATRE: Made In Britain | Old Red Lion Theatre | 6-11 Jan
Ella Carmen Greenhill’s insight into the state of play amongst ‘the British youth’ follows an angry, disenfranchised boy and girl who form a chance friendship at a G8 march. Can they save each other, or is it too late for both of them? Details and tickets here.

THEATRE: Shaw’s Women | Tristan Bates Theatre | 6-31 Jan
Jane Nightwork Productions follow the lauded (and ThisWeek-investigated) ‘Retelling Oedipus’ present a pair of rarely-seen George Bernard Shaw plays measuring the breadth of his female character creations. Like a back-to-front ‘Pygmalion’, ‘Village Wooing’, which begins on a cruise ship, follows a gentile travel writer’s socially-improbable relationship with a chatty phone operator. ‘How He Lied To Her Husband’, meanwhile, is a rom-com in one act about a love triangle with a wry twist in its tail. Details and tickets here.
