The last chance choice – Queen Anne (Theatre Royal Haymarket)

Don’t miss your final opportunity to see the Royal Shakespeare Company’s tale of friendship and political intrigue starring Romola Garai. It is 1702. As Princess Anne is about to take the throne, the politicians and advisors around her jostle for position. What she needs is a friend. But the one friend she has is hatching her own plan.

The escapist choice – Five Guys Named Moe (Marble Arch Theatre)

Marble Arch looks different this autumn. Step out of the tube station’s exit 3 and you’re met with a brand-new pop-up theatre. Inside, a cool bar takes audiences back to 1940s New Orleans. And when you go past the bar into the Spiegeltent auditorium, a joyful, fun-filled, conga-riffic show, packed with the songs of Louis Jordan, will bebop away the troubles of the day. BOOK NOW
