Mother of him 

EastEnders actress Tracy Ann Oberman stars as Brenda, a single Jewish mother who tries to manage her professional life while ushering youngest son, Jason, off to school. This could be a day like any other, if older brother Matthew wasn’t under house arrest. Evan Placey’s drama, inspired by true events, questions what it takes for a mother to stop loving her son. Until 26 October at Park Theatre

Art

Yigal Ozeri: Insistently Real

Looking straight towards the viewer’s eye, these sylph-like models smile, gaze and ponder as they have their picture taken – except not all is as it seems.

For as much as they seem like high-resolution photographs, the images are, in fact, oil paintings by Israeli artist Yigal Ozeri.

Known for his expertise in hyper-realistic paintings of beautiful women and landscapes, the work of Ozeri – who today lives in New York – has been featured in collections around the world, including at the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Jewish Museum of New York, The Israel Museum and the Tel Aviv Museum of Art.

Now the talented 61-year-old’s latest work can be viewed for a limited time at Pontone Gallery in London. You have to see it to believe it!

Until 6 October at Pontone Gallery, Cadogan Gardens, www.pontonegallery.art
