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

COMEDY: RAT – Induction | The Vaults | 28 Jan – 1 Feb
Shooting the bolt on this year’s ‘politics, gender and income’-themed Vault Festival, sketch players Camilla Whitehill, Dave Newman and Alistair Donegan present their celebrated fringe feature ‘RAT – Induction’. It’s the dreamlike story of three people (and an invisible intercom voice) who review their past lives leading to the present; dark recesses, bleak corners and all. “You’ll laugh. You may cry. You may cry some more. You’ll do one more small laugh, then it ends. After that you can go away and try and pretend it never happened”. Details and tickets here.

MUSIC: Neneh Cherry + Rocketnumbernine | Electric Ballroom | 28 Jan (pictured)
Ever the fearless hip-pop experimentalist, ‘Man Child’ hitmaker Neneh Cherry plays behind her first LP in eighteen years, last year’s genre-screwing ‘Blank Project’. She’s joined live by its lead beat-maker Rocketnumbernine. Details and tickets here.

THEATRE: Hello/Goodbye | Hampstead Theatre | until 28 Feb
Rom-com writer Peter Souter and a strong on and off-stage cast drive this spirited metropolitan play, which follows an only-in-films mix-up in which a sassy career girl and a “sexy” stranger wind up sharing a flat against their (initial) wishes. Details and tickets here.
