THE PLAY

B-Road Movie

A ludicrously funny evening as house-proud Yvonne and sluttish Tina set off on the B6429 and wind up Bound for Cairo - Joyce Grenfell meets Thelma and Louise at The Purple Rose of Cairo. Another hit from the glorious Lip Service.

Hackney Empire, London E8 (0181-985 2424)

THE READING

Gore Vidal

The wise, waspish, well-versed master of American letters graces London with a reading and signing session of Palimpsest, his memoirs.

Hatchards, London W1 12.30pm (0171-439 9921)
