This breathtaking new one-woman play is the Fleabag of the future

It can feel too simplistic to compare works of art created by two very different women. Yet there are striking parallels between Amanda Wilkin's award-winning new play Shedding A Skin and the stage version of Fleabag. Both are one-woman productions about directionless millennials who use goofy humour as a defence mechanism. Both blend laugh-out-loud jokes with cry-real-tears poignancy. Both debuted at Soho Theatre. Phoebe Waller-Bridge has even heaped praise on Shedding A Skin, describing it as "profound, modern, funny, stark and hopeful".

"Wilkin's play follows Myah, a 30-something mixed-race woman struggling to hold down a series of soul-sapping office jobs in London," says Stylist Loves' deputy editor Moya Crockett. "Freshly single and panicking about where her life is headed, she sublets a room from a formidable elderly Jamaican woman called Mildred. The result is one of the most beautiful portrayals of intergenerational friendship I've ever seen, as Mildred pushes Myah to start living with more courage and conviction. Sharply perceptive about race, gentrification and modern work culture, Shedding A Skin is also genuinely moving and truly joyful. Soho Theatre is releasing new tickets for the play's sold-out run every day – book yours and say 'I saw her first' when Wilkin inevitably becomes as big a star as Waller-Bridge." Until 17 July; from £19; Soho Theatre, 21 Dean St, London W1D

A fully captioned performance of Shedding A Skin will be streamed online at 7.30pm on 15 July; from £12; sohotheatre.com

Live out your Bridgerton fantasies with Secret Cinema's immersive ball

Is it just us, or do you measure the passing of pandemic time by your TV obsessions? Everyone remembers the Tiger King binge of the first lockdown, while six months ago, our screens were set alight by Bridgerton. And if watching Shonda Rhimes' smash hit period drama series made you long to escape into a world of frothy gowns and society soirees, clear your calendar: Secret Cinema is throwing a season of magnificent Bridgerton-inspired blowouts later this year and ticket registration is open now. 

Renowned for bringing blockbusters including Romeo & Juliet and Moulin Rouge to life, the immersive event specialists are now inviting guests to choose titles and don fabulous outfits for a three-hour Regency soiree at an as-yet-undisclosed Zone 4 London location. As well as waltzing to pop classics reimagined by a classical string quartet just like in the show, you'll also be able to partake in entertainment inspired by famous scenes from the series (think life drawing, card games and a spectacular light show). Tickets go on sale on 6 July at 10am, so add your name the waitlist ASAP to make sure you're first in line. Lady Whistledown, we're coming for you. From 10 November; £39; secretbridgertonball.com
