Encounters

Sold out

Meet Bush Associate Artists Sabrina Mafhouz and Caroline Horton in these two intimate, frankly spoken and wildly funny solo shows performed over one evening.

You’re Not Like the Other Girls Chrissy by Caroline Horton
January 1945. Paris has been liberated. Christiane, an eccentric and acutely myopic Parisian waits at Gare Du Nord for a ticket to England to be reunited with her fiancé. Whilst she waits, this gloriously irrepressible mademoiselle recounts the story of her love affair with Cyril, a tongue-tied English teacher from Staffordshire.

A fond, comical and ultimately poignant portrait of one woman’s experience of love and war. Best Solo Performer, The Stage Awards 2010.

Created and performed by Caroline Horton. Commissioned by China Plate, Warwick Arts Centre and mac birmingham

Dry Ice by Sabrina Mahfouz
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 as a waitress in a strip-club 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. It is also quite funny. Recommended for ages 15+

Ambreen Razia: ‘Show the West the pain they’ve caused…the colonial trauma inflicted on your ancestors’

Monday – ‘I hid his firearms’ she said through her chestnut eyes, her finger tips lightly touching one another, blonde highlights through her Pakistani hair, each strand telling me who she used to be. ‘This country’s failed me’, her words bouncing off her majesty’s walls, I sit opposite her with my name, she sits opposite…

the lonely creative. by Robyn London

I have spent my life immersed in creativity.  As a guide, passion or perhaps what others may interpret as an unrealistic dream.  It is embedded within my earliest memories. It has nurtured my soul. There is beauty in the moments of creativity that healed parts of me, that I didn’t realise were broken. Memories of…

Although our theatre is closed, we are still committed to finding ways…
