Hotlist: Week four

Catch it while it’s hot

Burning Down the House@ Cellar

‘Burning down the house’ raises several questions, one of which is, does anyone actually like house? A night of innocent new wave fun -possibly the only night where you can pretend to be your mum and dad.

When: Tuesday

Where: The Cellar

Ian McKellan, Geir Lippestad and Stephen Fry@ The Union

Reeling after the last minute ‘drop out’ from Tommy Robinson back in 2nd week, The Union has bounced back with three big names for 4th. May well be a marketing ploy for their latest autobiographies, but you’ve got to get your money’s worth at some point from that Union membership card.

When: Monday (McKellen), Tuesday (Lippestad), Wednesday (Fry)

Where: The Union

Jerusalem@ Keble O’Reilly

Like Beckett on speed or Coward on coke, The Bard on base or Davenant on dots, Butterworth bashes out some hard-hitting-no-nonsense-quipping dialogue in his masterpiece-glance at rural England.

When: Wednesday – Saturday

Where: O’Reilly Theatre, Keble

When: Wednesday

Where: The Cellar
