1.Tom Jones - The Questors Theatre

About: Join the adventures of Tom Jones, the adopted son of an 18th Century English squire as love and mistaken identity lead to a series of hilarious escapades.

As he navigates the complexities of society and relationships, the tale satirises social conventions and class distinctions while celebrating the resilience of its spirited protagonist.

Funny and dramatic by turns, Tom's youthful recklessness brings him not only into the arms of a number of amorous women but also to the condemned cell.

Will his true heritage be finally revealed to save him? And will he finally marry his only true love Sophia?

When: Fri, 24 May to Sat, 1 June.

Where: 12 Mattock Ln, London W5 5BQ

Price: See website for prices

2.Medea - The Questors Theatre

About: Medea is wife to Jason. She was instrumental in his quest for the fleece, even killing her own brother. She now lives in exile where she has borne him two sons.

When he abandons her for a new wife Medea faces banishment. She begs for one day's grace. Time enough to exact an appalling revenge.

Amidst the tragedy of Ben Power's forceful adaptation, we see in Medea "a recognisable human being, alive with contradictions" (The Guardian, 2014).

This feminist retelling of Euripides' classic asks us difficult questions about gender, motherhood, and whether we can ever empathise with people who do terrible things.

When: Fri, 31 May to Sat, 8 June

Where: 12 Mattock Ln, London W5 5BQ

Price: See website for prices

4. PHANTASIE: ENGLISH MUSIC FOR PIANO TRIO

About: A wonderful programme that brings together several British composers exploring musical directions at the start of the 20th century featuring works by Gustav Holst, Frederick Delius, Rebecca Clarke, John Ireland, and the little-known Kentish composer Percy Hilder Miles (who was Professor at the Royal Academy of Music and teacher of Rebecca Clarke), performed by Ensemble Kopernikus.

Ensemble Kopernikus - Kasia Ziminska (violin), Alice Purton (cello) and Ian Tindale (piano) - are an exciting young chamber group based in London, dedicated to exploring the rich and varied repertoire available for a variety of instrumentations.

Praised for their 'imaginative and demanding' programmes, they combine well-known works with rarely performed gems.

The ensemble is becoming known for their sharp attention to detail and energetic, lyrical interpretations.

When: Wed, 22 May.

Where:  St Peter's Acton Green, Southfield Road, W4 1BB

Price: See website for prices.
