THE NATIONAL THEATRE OF BRENT'S (below) wonderfully dunderheaded telling of the Charles and Diana story, Love Upon the Throne has so successfully tapped what's left of our interest in the mismatch of the century that it is transferring to the West End. Visit Patrick Barlow and John Ramm's palace of pun while admission is still at fringe prices.

Bush Theatre, London W12 (0181-743 3388) 8pm
