Sean’s pick of the week:

Terre Haute, Trafalgar Studio 2. Gripping imagined conversations between Gore Vidal and Oklahoma Bomber Timothy McVeigh on the eve of his execution.
The Lady from Dubuque, Theatre Royal Haymarket. Fascinating, intriguing (and funny) drama by Edward Albee with Dame Maggie Smith.
Evita, Adelphi. Last chance to see Argentine dynamo Elena Roger as the first lady of them all.
Landscape with Weapon, NT Cottesloe. New Joe Penhall play about the morals of the arms industry with the excellent Tom Hollander. Thought provoking and not hectoring.
Total Eclipse, Menier. Last weeks for the Christopher Hampton play about the romantic poets Rimbaud and Verlain. Daniel Evans shines in this somewhat flawed production.
