15 January 2018 Katie Da Cunha Lewin

The year is really heating up now! Not literally of course, but people seem to be coming out of their winter slumber, and London is promising all sorts of cultural treats. Here are just a few to get you started this week…

Luisa Omielan: Politics for Bitches
 
In this show, British comedian Luisa Omielan helps you make sense of a confusing world. Fresh off from her previous show, ‘Am I Right Ladies?’, Omielan is back at the Soho Theatre with a work in progress show. One of the hardest working comedians around, check out Omielan’s work here for a fresh look at politics.
 
Luisa Omielan: Politics for Bitches is at the Soho Theatre from 8 – 19 January.
 
The Twilight Zone
 
There’s still time to catch the first ever adaptation of the famous television show for the stage, currently on at the Almeida. Adapted by Anne Washburn, notable for her incredible play ‘Mr Burns’ which was on at the Almeida a few years ago, this ensemble piece tells three strange stories in an evening of innovative and surprising theatre.
 
The Twilight Zone is at the Almeida Theatre until the 27 January.
 
London Short Film Festival
 
One of the biggest and most respected short film festivals returns with abandon this January. Showing over 500 films at venues like the Curzon Soho, Regent Street Cinema and ICA, viewers can expect some daring and inventive work from some of the UK’s most exciting new filmmakers. In their 15th year, they now accept submissions from international artists too. 
 
London Short Film Festival runs from January 12 – 21 at various venues across London.
