A Bush Community Production from the 14-17 Bush Young Company

‘The sky set on fire, and I can feel the light in my bones.’

When a mysterious cosmic event hits, a group of unsuspecting teenagers are suddenly granted superpowers and together they must work out what to do with their newfound abilities. But quickly, their new world of endless possibilities starts to crumble as trust is shaken, lines are drawn and conflicts erupt.

As the group clash, an ominous threat looms closer and closer, forcing them to fight for their survival. Sure to keep you on the edge of your seat, HORIZON is a thrilling, witty, superhuman coming of age story about the quest to find your place in the world.

The 14-17 Bush Young Company’s second production follows their main house debut with Back Up! last summer. A new Bush commission written by recent Bush Emerging Writers’ Group member Kwame Owusu and directed by Abigail Sol (babirye bukilwa’s Les Be Anne, Young Vic).
