Londonist Lunchtimes: World at One @ King's Head Theatre

What are you doing with your lunchbreaks between now and the end of the week?

We'll bet you're not taking an hour out to look askance at a modern-day polemic, to wonder about the state of our celeb-struck society, or to ruminate on the rights and wrongs of today's media-controlling PR gurus...

Why not? You can do all this and more for just £7 at the King's Head Theatre in Islington from tomorrow lunchtime.

And you'll be back in the office in an hour, refreshed and reinvigorated, presumably with a new outlook on things like, ahem, Microsoft Outlook.

World at One at the King's Head Theatre is a regular series that stages three interesting and entertaining 20-minute plays on one set theme, tackling contemporary issues and challenging modern times.

This series' theme is "SELLEBRITY". Better than snacking on the same old sandwiches from Sainsbury's.

Griff Phillips writes about comebacks, secrets and lies; King's Head Theatre General Manager Fleur Smith wonders how far celeb-wannabies will go; and Aussie Ben Ellis looks at who holds the puppet strings in today's society.

World at One plays at the King's Head Theatre, 115 Upper Street, Islington N1 1NQ, at 1pm from 24 to 28 June. The show lasts one hour. Tickets cost £7 (£5 for conc). Call the box office on 0207 226 1916, or visit www.kingsheadtheatre.org/theatre-matinee for more information.
