Preview: Theatre - Festival of visual theatre

Short of an evening in with Jennifer Aniston or a trip around Laboratoires Garnier, Paris, the best possible guide to hair care comes in Slaphead (below). A theatrical cross between The Sorcerer's Apprentice and Sweeney Todd with life-size puppets and sharp scissors, we're promised an evening of lunatic-fringe theatre, just one of the treats in store at the British Festival of Visual Theatre, which has just opened. That show is on for three nights next month at BAC, but the Young Vic and the Festival Hall are also in on the act. There's a production of The Turn of the Screw in Clerkenwell's underground prison and a rare repeat of Bobby Baker's How to Shop.
