BROKEN SPACE SEASON

Sold out

We've had a series of leaks that have made our lighting grid unsafe to use, so we can't turn the lights on for the next few months while a whole host of surveyors with clipboards help us work out how to fix the problem.

We're not scared of the dark though so we've created The Broken Space Season, a festival of dazzling short works by the brightest writers in the firmament. At 7.30pm you can see one of three new monologues commissioned from three of the UK's most important playwrights; at 8.30pm every night is the centrepiece – the world premiere of ST PETERSBURG by Declan Feenan, a masterpiece in miniature. At 9.30pm – if you dare – you can catch one of six ghostly new plays by six of the most exciting new voices in theatre, all taking place in pitch black.

The Bush is broken but undaunted. Darkened but undimmed.

Work Experience Diary | Myla “I honestly hadn’t the slightest idea what to expect”

Myla took part in a week of work experience at the Bush. Here she recounts her experience of reading scripts, booking the Artistic Director’s international travel and helping manage a front of house crisis. As I walked up the stairs to the entrance to Bush Theatre, I honestly hadn’t the slightest idea what to expect…
