This is the story of a life. A woman is born, she lives, and continues to live. Up until now she has drunk 24,752 cups of tea, eaten 776 chicken nuggets, spent 9,828 hours on the phone, cried uncontrollably 68 times, offended 28 people, fallen in love twice, spent 12 years 2 months sleeping, 2 days farting, 6,552 hours reading the headlines.

A song and dance vanitas Singer: François Musician: Ian Hill Director: Simon Vincenzi An ageless singer and a musician haunt a disused theatre they like to call their empire. Alternating between complicity and ill-will, they invent not without difficulty - a cabaret for an imagined audience. The repertoire includes an eclectic mix of music, meandering from the old songs of the Langue d’Oc to rock ‘n roll, via Yvette Guilbert, Kurt Weill, Richard Wagner and Marc Almond, amongst others. They struggle to finish the show. Do they really want to? New Wolsey Studio Sunday 29 May 9pm £8 PHOTO: MANUEL VASON

Grey McLaren/Stoke Newington International Airport

Greg has been singing, to everyone, everywhere. Where he would speak he must sing. He’s recorded his encounters and mashed them up to create a slippery world between what is meant and what is expressed, what is created and what is found. It’s a fantastically odd and moving journey from place to place, voice to voice that slips between reality and imagination, and light social self-harm. It’s a peculiarly playful and dangerous one man opera performed with utterly offhand conviction. Developed at PILOT, Bristol Old Vic, Cambridge Junction & Mac Arts. Supported by Arts Council England.

Laura Mugridge

Performed in a vintage, yellow VW campervan called ‘Joni’ parked outside the New Wolsey Theatre, Running On Air is an award-winning show by comedian Laura Mugridge, performed for just five audience members at a time. Recreating the beauty of the great outdoors inside the campervan, Laura invites you on an intimate journey from Lands End to Edinburgh, sharing her experience of marriage, camping and her love of the good life. With her own brand of quirky and charming comedy, Laura describes a journey that involves fell running and a performance in front of three kestrels: a joyful investigation into the beauty and complexity of domestic life. “A life-affirming, love-affirming odyssey full of exquisite tiny details... while her show may be brilliantly simple, she is simply brilliant.” METRO Created by Laura Mugridge and Tom Frankland Produced by Ric Watts Developed at Camden People’s Theatre www.lauramugridge.co.uk www.adventuresinwellingtons.blogspot.com New Wolsey Theatre Tuesday 7 and Wednesday 8 June 3pm, 5pm, 7pm and 9pm £8

A casual meal between friends becomes someth ing far stranger when the group’s behavi our inexplicably starts to change. As the rules of logic disappear from the room, the friends find themselves trapped in an absurd situation tha t forces them to face wh o they really are. Every line of dialogue in this stunning new play is inv the cast each night. Ins pired by the surrealist film ented afresh by s of Luis Buñuel and the atmospheric theatr e of Maurice Maeterlinck, this is hilarious and terrifying theatre about the way a new generation of young Britons engage with the world aro und them.

Supported by The Lec he Trust and the Arts Cou ncil of England. Co-produced by the Nuf field Theatre in Southa mpton Developed through wor kshops at the Young Vic Theatre. “Su
