WHAT'S ON

The Infidel: The Musical
Theatre Royal Stratford East
★★★★✩

Catchy lines like You're A Jew and You Don't Need Agent Provocateur When You've Got A Burkha stay in your head following this hilarious new musical - just don't continue to sing them on the Tube home. It's not the same when out of context.

WHAT'S ON

Neville's Island
Duke Of York's Theatre
★★★✩✩

Rain pours down on a verdant inlet and the perfume of pines fills the auditorium. Stormy camps, reluctant kindling and a fragile grasp on fortitude.

FOOD

The Hackney Pearl, Prince Edward Road, Hackney Wick

★★★★★

WHAT'S ON

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
(12A) 101mins
★★✩✩✩

When mindless Megan Fox thinks about the loss of her father and her role in the whole Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle circus, her eyes tell a story.

WHAT'S ON

Effie Gray
(12A) 108mins
★★★★✩

If Effie Gray lacks the emotional release that the painstaking accumulation of frustrations appears to demand, it is perhaps testimony to the artistic courage of script writer Emma Thompson (who also stars).
