What: Angry

Where: Southwark Playhouse

When: Weds 14th Feb - 10th March

A spaceship hurtles towards a black hole. A book-loving couple flee a burning city. A bloodshot eye conjures up kisses and wild animals. The world premiere of Philip Ridley’s Angry is a menacing, magical, and darkly comedic collection of stories that vibrate with the lingering unease of our times.Georgie Henley (The Chronicles of Narnia) will be joined by Olivier Award nominee Tyrone Huntley (Jesus Christ Superstar, Dreamgirls, Book of Mormon), to perform the series of six gender-neutral monologues on subjects as diverse as refugees, millennial anger, and interstellar travel. Both actors will learn all six monologues and both will perform every night, but who performs each monologue will alternate from night to night.

What: Jorja Smith

Where: Shepherd’s Bush Empire

When: Weds 14th

Get down to Shepherd’s Bush Empire to see the winner of the Brits 2018 Critics’ Choice Award slay the stage. Hot off the back of a huge 2017 (we’re talking an appearance of Drake’s More Life and a North American tour with Bruno Mars), she’s ready to take on a new year, and has already had major success with ‘Let Me Down’ and a feature on the Black Panther soundtrack. The fact that she’s done all of this without a record label is a testament to Jorja’s flawless voice, and an unflappable determination to succeed. This’ll be a special one.

What: Superorganism

Where: Jazz Cafe

When: Thurs 15th

We got to know Superorganism last year with the release of their 10/10 debut single ‘Something For Your M.I.N.D’, and from that moment on we were hooked. Superorganism is an eight-person pop band, dealing in bright, fun tunes that sound like updated versions of something you might find on the Juno soundtrack, half-nostalgic retro, half bang-up-to-date electro-pop. Whatever it is, head over to the Jazz Cafe on Thursday and find out for yourself just how good this band is.
