BEING HUMAN: Two great theologians consider what it really means to be a human being in the splendour of St Paul's Cathedral.

Dipper Malkin offer a folksy way to cap off your Monday.

ADVENTURERS WANTED: Epic storytelling, tabletop gaming, and improvisation collide at this one-off adventure from the Vagina Museum. With the narrative shaped by each role of the die, a riotous and unpredictable show is guaranteed. The Book Club (Shoreditch), £6/£8, book ahead, 7pm

FEMINIST THEATRE: Four kickass women who've escaped Trump's America perform a double bill of plays about justice, murder and the insatiable male ego. Catch Nowhere Man and Lady Killers back to back, or pop in for a single show if you're short on time. Etcetera Theatre (Camden), from £5, 7pm/9pm

THE SIGNS WE MISS: Socially conscious conversation starters Subjectivity are coming to The Old Queen's Head for a discussion on spotting the signs of domestic violence and how we can respond to them. The Old Queen's Head (Islington), £12.50, book ahead, 8pm-10pm

Good cause of the day

Splash out on a six course charity dinner at Perilla in Newington Green. Each course at Dinner for Hamish comes with its own wine pairing and all the proceeds will go to St Christopher's Hospice, which cared for the head chef's close friend during his battle with leukaemia.
