6. The National Theatre of Scotland has an impressive collection of work featured in its online shorts series Scenes For Survival this week, kicking off tomorow, when Patrick Martins and Emma King perform an extract from the new play by May Sumbwanyambe. Based on a true story,  Enough of Him explores the life of Joseph Knight, an African man brought to Scotland as a slave by plantation owner John Wedderburn to serve in his Perthshire mansion, who then starts a relationship with a maid in the household. The Scenes are available at www.nationaltheatrescotland.com/scenesforsurvival

7. Another highlight of the National Theatre’s Scenes For Survival series is Wednesday, rather confusingly being shown on Friday. This reflective drama features a bickering couple for whom the creative process leads to nothing but disagreement. Directed by Finn Den Hertog, Douglas Henshall and Morven Christie feature in this inventive new short from writer Tena Stivicic, a witty and hilarious take on relationship frustrations and lockdown creativity. Produced in association with Shetland Arts. www.nationaltheatrescotland.com/scenesforsurvival
