50 WAYS TO LEAVE YOUR LOVER AT CHRISTMAS

Sold out

It's back – even funnier, filthier and with added festive frolics.

There are a million ways to tell someone it's over, and where better than under the mistletoe? The Latitude Festival smash hit returns to the Bush following a sell-out Summer run – updated and reinvented for Christmas.

A crazy cocktail of characters and stories created by six of the Bush's hottest playwrights explores every aspect of the break-up, whether hilarious or heartbreaking. Guaranteed to strike a Yuletide chord with anyone who's ever loved and left.
