SHINING CITY TO OPEN IN CAMDEN
John, a newly-bereaved businessman, is being haunted by the ghost of his wife.

Ian, however, has problems of his own – his relationship with his girlfriend and the mother of his child is falling apart. Gritty, compassionate and spooky. 9-13 Feb at Theatro Technis, NW1. Tickets £11, tel: 020 7353 5700 or www.towertheatre.org.uk.

MARBLE ARCH GETS NEW FLASHY HOTEL
It’s debatable that London needed another super-swish hotel, but never mind, along comes The Arch in Marble Arch. Each of this townhouse’s 82 rooms has been decorated in high-octane contemporary style, and the hotel sports the latest technology for entertainment and business. Another touch of class is the bar, which features a martini library – not a bad way to spend an evening. 50 Great Cumberland Place, W1H 7FD 020 7724 4700.
