The best of stage and screen in the capital this week

COMEDY Charity night with Howard Marks

As anyone who’s read his autobiography – or seen the movie – can attest, Mr Nice has had an interesting life smuggling weed and dodging the MI5, IRA and, more recently, the spliff-heads that gather at his shows. He’s a laconic and hilarious raconteur and this gig also raises money for the Beyond Food Foundation.

Bloomsbury Theatre, 15 Gordon Street, WC1H 0AH. 8pm. £16

EXHIBITION Remote Control

The idiot box – as it was once known – is the subject for this look at how TV has influenced life, society, our means of communication, mass entertainment and visual artists since it arrived in living rooms in the Fifties. Featuring works by Andy Warhol, Steve McQueen and others, along with a programme of screenings, too – of course.

ICA, The Mall, SW1Y 5AH. Until June 10. Free

THEATRE Toxic Bankers!

SMS Ethical Investments’ money-motivated staff beaver away at their computer screens in Andrew Taylor and Desmond O’Connor’s new musical comedy about financial misdeeds. A well-researched plot, lively performances and the nifty lyrics of the intertwined songs make it an enjoyable evening.

Leicester Square Theatre, WC2H 7BX. Until April 14. From £15 
toxicbankers.com

 

THEATRE The King’s Speech

The King's Speech



Whether or not you caught the Oscar-winning film, Adrian Noble’s production of David Seidler’s script (initially written as a stage play) about the stammering monarch is a treat. Witty and humane, and simply staged against an outsize rotating frame, it’s impossible not to feel for Charles Edwards’ future King Bertie.

Wyndhams, WC2H 0DA. Until July 21. From £17.50

FILM Delicacy

Audrey Tautou starred opposite Tom Hanks in the much-derided adaptation of The Da Vinci Code, but to most she is best known for her breakout role in Amelie, as the impossibly cute and quirky Parisian forging a unique way through life. She has stuck mostly to more low-key material recently, such as this subtle drama about a widow reconnecting with the world.

 On general release from Friday
