The Playlist: Week One

Week one is officially here and though Freshers’ week might be over there’s still plenty going on to keep you occupied. While this semester’s new plays are yet to be performed why not check out Blind Mirth’s first improv comedy show of the year. If comedy is your thing ‘Me and Earl and the Dying Girl’ is a tragicomedy that defies expectations offering a new angle on the theme of films like ‘The Fault in Our Stars’. On TV this week ‘The Gamechangers’, featuring Daniel Radcliffe, explores the hugely popular Grand Theft Auto game series, the boundaries it pushed and the opposition it came up against. Just as controversial is David Lagercrantz’s ‘The Girl in the Spider’s Web’. Written as an addition to Steig Larsson’s Millennium Trilogy the novel pays homage and seems to leave room for more. If you want to share your story this week, head down to Aikman’s for Inklight’s first open mic poetry session.
