Know... what it's like to be a generation more often called confused than given serious attention. Shopping And Fucking by Mark Ravenhill is a blackly humorous look at the lives of twentysomethings. Dare to enter their world - with its cheap sex, fast food and designer drugs - and find out if love and morality are possible there. Queens Theatre, Shaftesbury Avenue, W1 (0171-494 5040). Tickets pounds 7.50-pounds 23.50.

Hear... neo-punk from the American third-generation band Green Day. Tour kicks off at Ulster Hall, Belfast (Box Office 01232 329 685). Tickets from venue box office and the usual agents, pounds 10.

See... Forced Entertainment at the ICA. The company's latest theatre piece, Pleasure, features a man dressed up as a pantomime horse, a blackboard index of filthy words, and girls in charity-shop wedding dresses. Until 31 Jan, ICA, The Mall, London SW1Y 5AH (0171-930 3647).
