There's something special about Will Adamsdale's shows. Sum them up in a phrase – a lecture from a motivational speaker with a taste for the surreal (the Perrier Award-winning Jackson's Way); the tale of harried office drone who retreats to live with his possessions in a 5ft-square storage container (The Receipt); an exploration of computers by someone who knows nothing about them (The Human Computer) – and they sound appealingly quirky. But it doesn't really do justice to their Gogol-style blend of absurdist theatre and character-comedy belly laughs that leaves audiences both elated and exhausted.

Developers of London’s derelict Battersea Power Station yesterday got qualified backing from the Mayor of London, who described designs to transform the site into flats, shops and offices, as “encouraging”.

Kenneth Tynan once noted that Noël Coward had been Slightly in Peter Pan as a child, and wholly in Peter Pan ever since. Charles Hawtrey, who played the same role, was much more of a lost boy, as we see in this one-woman show, in which Amanda Lawrence impersonates him and 47 other characters, male, female and animal. Jiggery Pokery, described by the director and co-author Paul Hunter as "a homage to a true English eccentric", didn't make me like or admire an actor I have never found funny. It has, however, added, to my superficial view of Hawtrey as disturbing, several layers of disquiet. This deft, daft collage of public and private moments has plenty of laughs, but it also shows us the chin trembling with rage and fear, the trembling hand pouring gin into the teacup.

Plans for a possible extension to a busy Tube line and a new bridge across the River Thames were outlined today by London Mayor Boris Johnson.
