London’s most anticipated openings: 23–29 July

Here’s our Monday morning digest of the new shows our users are most excited to see:

1. Home, I’m Darling

Previews from 24 July, runs until 5 September 2018 at The National Theatre.

Loved by critics and audiences when it opened at Theatr Clwyd in Wales, this play is a “scalpel-wielding dissection of the fetishisation of wifeliness.” It’s NT run is already sold out so if you want to get along, you should check out the Friday Rush lottery or trying for a return.

2. Evita

Runs 24 — 29 July 2018 at Churchill Theatre Bromley

Bill Kenwright’s acclaimed production of this musical theatre classic is in South East London for a few nights before embarking on a nation-wide tour. Evita tells the story of Eva Peron, wife of former Argentine dictator Juan Peron, from humble beginnings to iconic status as the spiritual leader of the Argentine people.

3. Fantastically Great Women Who Made History

One day only! Saturday 28 July 2018 at Shakespeare’s Globe

Join children’s author Kate Pankhurst at the Globe this Saturday and stand tall with daring suffragettes, send secret messages with WWII agents and search for treasure with pirate queens!

4. Natalie Palamides: NATE (Edinburgh previews)

Runs 26–28 July 2018 at Soho Theatre before heading to the Edinburgh Festival. Returns to Soho for a full run in November.

For the first time in history, it’s hard to be a man. Natalie doesn’t understand this… but NATE does.

5. Reading Gaol

Runs from 23 July — 2 August 2018 at Theatre N16

Proforça Theatre Company presents a visceral new staging of Oscar Wilde’s haunting ballad with brand new material. Featuring Wilde’s original poem about the execution of a convicted solider remixed with five brand new pieces of writing and physical theatre.
