Mr Puntila and His Man Matti (Albery Theatre)

A well-deserved transfer for this Almeida hit. Comedy duo The Right Size are inspired casting for Brecht's tale of a split-personality landowner. To 9 Jan

Love Upon the Throne (Comedy Theatre)

The Charles and Diana story (up to the divorce) presented by the National Theatre of Brent (all two of them). Very funny and oddly touching. To 9 Jan

Martin Guerre (West Yorkshire Playhouse)

It's third time lucky for this much rewritten Boublil/Schonberg musical. In Conall Morrison's starkly involving production, it finally emerges as a tighter, magnificent show. To 13 Feb
