An explosive double bill of new, short plays found in West London, directed by Blanche McIntyre and performed in an exciting space at the new Bush:

REPENTANCE by Mediah Ahmed

Tug of war. A game I used to play as a child. It was fun then.

A miniature epic about a Muslim girl, her new boyfriend, and everything in between.

BEHIND THE LINES by Neil Daley

Me, I’m in no gang; that’s long.

I just wanna play football, make dough, chase girls – in that order.

As police tape cordons off yet another street corner, we’re taken on a breathless sprint through the lives and fears of the onlookers.

ANGLE’s mission is to uncover raw, local writing talent and marry it with professional theatre makers to produce vibrant, unheard voices for the British stage.

Over the summer of 2011, ANGLE conducted a ‘call for plays’ across West London:

“ANGLE’s three month search involved a fleet of community partners and volunteers and which took us across six boroughs in West London; from Hounslow High Street to Tesco’s Extra in Wembley. Our two selected writers, Mediah Ahmed and Neil Daley, are everything we could have hoped for; both offer something charismatic, vivid and new to the canon and we are proud to be their champions and to platform their work at the spectacular new Bush theatre.” Charlotte Gwinner, Artistic Director of ANGLE

ANGLE at the Bush is made possible through funding from the Arts Council, Foyle Foundation, Wates Foundation and Trans-Siberian Orchestra, alongside generous support in kind from the Bush Theatre and Pentagram.

If you anticipate any access needs to reach the space, then please do get in touch with us in advance of your visit and we will be happy to help you.

There must be magic in the atmosphere By Benedict Lombe

Benedict Lombe from our Emerging Writers Group writes about diasporic experience. It’s 3am. I’m sitting in my room wolfing down a pack of Doritos and thinking about the night I just had. I’m also thinking – quite intensely – about who decided we needed more than one flavour of Doritos? Bro, you hit the jackpot…

Rachael Merry: The BSL access is ‘rooted in the telling of the story’

Zia Ahmed’s tender, funny, lyrical play about finding love and holding onto it with everything you have is keen to cross boundaries. Vital to the three-hander is Rachael Merry, who uses BSL interpretation to convey the poetic beauty of Ahmed’s language . Rachael talks to us about the show, language, and the role of accessibility…

Lauren Clancy: “What can our next government do for the arts?”

In two days’ time the country will head to the polls to decide who our next government will be. While this will be a pivotal moment for the nation in many ways, at the Bush we are keenly aware of the shared responsibility of the sector to ensure arts and culture sit firm on our…
