This Place We Know | News

We’re super excited to announce two innovative initiatives that will support and accompany This Place We Know, a landmark project in our #BushBreaksOut season. This Place We Know will see six world premieres of specially commissioned plays produced in six borrowed, non-theatre spaces across Shepherd’s Bush.

Local People’s Ticket Lottery
We’ve teamed up with Westfield London to give 20% of all tickets to This Place We Know completely free to local people who live and/or work in W12. To win two tickets to one of six fresh new plays from the city’s hottest playwrights brought to life in our favourite Shepherd’s Bush hangouts all you have to do is enter our Local People’s Ticket Lottery by clicking here.


Our Artistic Director, Madani Younis, said today “This Place We Know embraces the neighbourhood that surrounds the Bush Theatre; taking original plays to new and unexpected environments, meeting new people and encouraging local residents to become audience members for the first time. This aim will be realised through a partnership with shopping centre Westfield London, offering substantial financial support to fund an innovative ticketing initiative.”

Community Photography Project
Eileen Perrier has been commissioned to complete a photography project which will profile the faces of the local and artistic communities integral to our theatre. Large scale photography will be exhibited on the exterior of our building, currently closed whilst the building undergoes redevelopment, throughout September and October. Whilst Perrier captures images of the community and people of the Uxbridge Road, local residents will be encouraged to get involved and submit their own photography. The project furthers our mission to reflect the community in which we live and to provide a platform for local people to be heard.
