Give... space in your diary for 44GG-cup "Page 3 Stunna, Gayle Tuesday". The success of Brenda Gilhooly's comedy creation makes Melinda Messenger's statistics look rather meagre. Gayle has had the wonderful opportunity to record a song with Sam Fox, and also join the prestigious spoof chat show ranks alongside Caroline Aherne's old lady with fizz, Mrs Merton and Steve Coogan's perpetually offensive Alan Partridge. To 21 February, Studio 1, BAC, Lavender Hill, Battersea, London SW11 5TF. Tickets pounds 6/pounds 4 (0171-223 2223).

Understand... the group of people often seen as least likely to find morality in a hedonist, individual and ecstasy culture. Irvine Welsh has already revealed the different moral and social codes of the "chemical generation", and if the tit-for-tat horrors of Marabou Stork Nightmares are indicative, then his new play will be a revenger's tragedy with many surprising twists and turns. The set alternates between an abandoned sound studio, and a girlfriend who is waiting in her flat for her boyfriend who is ensconced in the studio at the hands of Jinks and Docksey who want to settle a score with him. To 21 March,West Yorkshire Playhouse, Playhouse Square, Quarry Hill, Leeds LS2 7UP. Tickets pounds 8-pounds 15 0113 213 7700.
