AFTER A much-appreciated run in July, tonight sees the return of Ubu Kunst, Luis Alberto Soto's irreverent revamp of Alfred Jarry's influential schoolboy satire on tyrants. Soto, who takes the role of the bum-sore, foul-mouthed conqueror, is assisted by two other performers, a chrysanthemum, a bowl of tomatoes and some kitchen utensils. Simple, yet highly effective.

Having been praised to the rafters in Edinburgh, the National Theatre of Brent's cross-wired dramatisation of the Charles and Di (right) story, Love upon the Throne, comes to London. Very funny, but not disrespectfully so.
