Enlightenment, Hampstead Theatre

A theatrical marathon

I've, probably unwisely, booked three plays on the trot this coming week but hey you sometimes have to take this opportunities when they arise.

First up is Enlightenment at Hamptead Theatre which I haven't been to for a while. Really like it as a venue and the play sounds interesting. It is about parents coming to terms with the disappearance of their son while he was travelling in the far east.

Then, on Tuesday, it's time for a bit of Hallowe'en themed theatre at the Southwark Playhouse. The theatre is below the brick exposed arches of London Bridge station so where better to see four short plays by playwrights including Mark Ravenhill and Neil LaBute all with scary themes and under the banner Terror 2010: Death and Resurrection

Of course I'm not going alone - I'm a right scaredy-cat so I need a hand or two to grab.

Completing the trio is a trip to fav venue the Soho Theatre to see Ivan and the Dogs which is based on a true story. Its set in the 1990's recession ravaged Moscow when many families were forced to abandon their pets.

Thursday will be an early night.
