Stage Whispers Part Two: Londonist Recommends
    Psychosomatic illness comes in for a grilling elsewhere in Richard Bean’s translation of Moliere’s The Hypochondriac (pictured), tackling the industry of counterfeit illness as a farce - or more aptly French farce. Currently running to rave reviews at The Alemeida, Almeida Street, N1.
  • With Theatre 503’s home undergoing a face-lift, it has taken to the road, quite literally, staging its latest play Last Tuesday by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Donald Margulies on a London bus. You won’t need your Oyster card for this journey though; it’s free with donations to the London Bombings Relief Charitable Fund. Bookings limited. Click here for more details.
  • Eugene O’Neil’s The Emperor Jones challenges the theme of identity and denial under Thea Sharrock’s acclaimed direction at The Gate, Pembridge Road, W11. Originally staged in the early 20th century, it pioneered the experience of black Americans in society.
  • Juliet Stevenson’s mesmerising performance has been the talk of the town, portraying the quarter-century decline of playwright Tom Murphy’s Irish heroine in The Alice Trilogy at the Royal Court, Sloane Square, SW1. Watch it and weep.
