And the LDN-based events the ThisWeek team is tipping today are….

ART: MF Husain – Master Of Modern Indian Painting | V&A | 28 May – 27 Jul (pictured) The V&A presents the very first display of ‘Indian Civilisation’, the final series of paintings by celebrated artist MF Husain, the ‘Picasso of India’, who worked on them till the days leading to his death in 2011. Each measuring twelve-by-six-feet, eight of the pieces are triptychs depicting Husain’s vision of his nation’s rich and vivid history, whilst the ninth is a single image of Hindu elephant god, Ganesha.

COMEDY: Deborah Frances White – Half A Can Of Worms | RADA Studio Theatre | 28 May Mining her real life events, candid comedienne Deborah Frances White’s poignantly autobiographical show finds her dealing with the search for her birth parents, she having been adopted as a baby. Details and tickets here.

THEATRE: Clarence Darrow | Old Vic | 28 May – 15 Jun Departing Old Vic AD Kevin Spacey is in-house (with his acting hat on, that is) for the first time since 2011, bowing out graciously from his job atop the theatre’s backstage board with a one-man turn as sharp-tongued 19th century civil rights lawyer Clarence Darrow. Having already played Clarence in 2009 play ‘Inherit The Wind’, and also in a TV movie, Space gets to grips with him again in David W Rintel’s script, which finds him looking back on his most famous cases. Details and tickets here.
