Thought-Provoking Theatre: Chimerica
Theatre can be a risky date choice if you don't know whether the production will be any good. But with West End transfers, you've got the reassurance that audiences have already declared a show a hit. So it is with Chimerica, the latest triumph from Headlong theatre company, described by Time Out as a "triumph of storytelling", starting previews on Tuesday this week. at the Harold Pinter Theatre. Tickets start at £13; we reckon it's worth every penny.
