Dry Ice

Sold out

Meet Nina, a 24-year-old stripper on the edge; her half-art-half-drug dealing boyfriend, and 18 other eccentrically entertaining characters from the world of surreal, sleazy, velvety strip-clubs and gentrified London dinner parties.

Dry Ice is a début solo show from the award-winning playwright and poet Sabrina Mahfouz. Mahfouz worked in strip-clubs for 5 years. But Dry Ice is not just a strip club exposé – it’s a story of a young girl trying to find her place in the world and so it becomes about reality, illusion, hope, disappointment, sex, power and the voyeur in all of us.

Daniel Bailey: Reflections on the last year at the Bush

On Monday 16th March 2020, like most venues across the city, we closed our doors in the wake of the Covid-19 Pandemic. It was a difficult time for us and we weren’t sure how things were going to pan out, but looking back I’m proud that the Bush team found ways to keep connected with…
