Sex and suicide in the city
Whether you have a sweet tooth, a taste for bloody cowboys, a secret passion for animated films or simply just need a good laugh, then it is time to get out and treat yourself to a well-deserved entertaining night with someone you care about.
Why Not Theatre Company are staging The City, a 2008 play by contemporary British playwright Martin Crimp about urban living that is so darkly comic it’s a little unsettling. Directed by Barry McKenna, the play’s themes include infidelity, suicide and the insecurities and anxieties that come with living in a city. Regular member Angela Heath-Larsen is sitting this one out to leave Sue Hansen-Styles on stage in the good company of Andrew Jeffers (Crazy Christmas Cabaret), Vanessa Poole (CTC) and Emilia Poole-Jöhnsson.

Spaghetti Western Night
eXtase magazine’s editor Nils Markvardsen offers up a bloody Sunday, with a double whammy of violent westerns. The two films were picked as an example of the films that inspired Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained. The early showing is The Fighting Fists of Shanghai Joe, the story of a Chinese immigrant facing the hardship of xenophobia and cattle herding in Texas. The second film is Cut-Throats Nine, a 1972 Spanish flick depicting the dark underbelly of human existence. WARNING: The latter is not for the faint of heart.
Husets Biograf, Rådhusstræde 13, Cph K; Sun 14:30, tickets 50kr per film, 70kr for both; www.huset-kbh.dk
