Playtext Sale

30 November, 12pm – 3pm

Meet the Bush Theatre Literary team and hear more about the submissions process at our Playtext Sale in the Script Library on 30 November. You’ll also have the opportunity to buy Bush Theatre playtexts for only £1 (normally sold at £7).

Our Playtext Sale will be hosted by Deirdre O’Halloran, Bush Theatre’s Associate Dramaturg, and Ifrah Ismail, Bush Theatre’s Literary Assistant. 

Deirdre works to identify and build relationships with new writers, commission new work and guide plays to the stage. Prior to joining the Bush team, Deirdre was Literary Associate at Soho Theatre, where she led on Soho Theatre’s Writers’ Lab programme and the biennial Verity Bargate Award.

Ifrah provides administrative and creative assistance to the Literary team. Alongside her work at the Bush, Ifrah is a writer, performer and facilitator. In 2018, she was chosen as one of the winners of the Vault Festival New Writers’ Award.
