Thank goodness! We are halfway through the working week, so its time to think of ways to spend your Bank holiday weekend, so here is a few ideas….
1. Blue/Orange, Young Vic Theatre: Joe Penhall’s play is directed by Matthew Xia, in which race, ethics and sanity all collide in this Olivier award winning play. It received strong and positive reviews from critics – so you don’t want to miss out! (booking until the 2nd July).
2. Running Wild, Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre: Michael Morpurgo’s novel is brought to the stage, featuring a wide range of puppets that seem to have gone down well with critics. This is the first production to open the Open Air Theatre’s 2016 season and is booking until the 12th June.
3. George Shaw: My Back to Nature, National Gallery: this exhibition of the artist’s work is the result of a two year studio residency at the gallery. The Turner Prize nominee focuses on woodland in his latest work and is worth a look for the variety of paintings he has created. Read Love London Love Culture’s full review here. (On display until 30th October).
4. Human Animals, Royal Court Theatre: Stef Smith’s debut play for the Royal Court Theatre opened earlier this week and despite mixed reviews it is certainly a show that has got people talking. (Booking until the 18th June).
5. The Comedy About A Bank Robbery, Criterion Theatre: if there is a show that is still getting plenty of buzz and enthusiasm on social media, it is certainly this latest offering from Mischief Theatre – if you haven’t seen it yet, why not?
