DryWrite at the Bush

Sold out

DryWrite bring their unique one-off theatrical events to the Bush for the first time in their role as resident company. For one Sunday each month an event is designed specifically to engage the audience with interactive and challenging briefs for short plays. Over the next 6 events playwrights will battle for your votes, your acquittal, your heckles, your affections and, most importantly, your attention in a series of extraordinary challenges. Six unforgettable Sundays on the cutting edge of new writing where, for one night only, the audience is king.

 

Sunday 21 August: What’s In My Box?
7 scenes. 7 sealed boxes. Only one can be opened.
A night of suspense in which playwrights compete for the attention of their audience. Only one of the seven boxes will be opened to have its contents revealed. Featuring bushgreen writers!

Sunday 25 September: Guilty?
7 gruesome crimes, 7 justifications from the criminals. The law has condemned them but can they be acquitted from a humanitarian viewpoint? Guilty or Not Guilty? The audience decides.
