Hugo Glendinning we brop

Ever wanted to get away from it all?

Kieran is 27, and stuck in a dead-end sea-side town. He wants to see the world, one exotic cocktail at a time. But tonight there’s a UK garage revival on at Rileys, and Sambuca’s half price.

Paul is 50 and on the road again, a British Lebowski in an old skool campervan. Trusting in tai chi and the power of sevens, he’s on a quest to reconcile then and now.

Join this mismatched couple on their road-trip through austerity Britain, searching for the perfect holiday moment. Sometimes the past is the only thing you can’t leave behind.


Misty

A full production of Misty arrives in Mar 2018.

Written and performed by Arinzé Kene
A work-in-progress presented by the Bush Theatre

Here is the city that we live in,
Notice that the city that we live in is alive,
Analyze our city and you’ll find, that our city even has bodily features,
Our city’s organs function like any living creature,
Our city is a living creature,

Some of us are viruses.

Arinzé Kene (God’s Property, Soho and Albany Theatres) delivers a lyrically virtuoso performance, part direct address, part rhyme, about one epic journey through the pulsating heart and dark soul of East London.

The Guardian
Simon’s poetry is packed with observant details and laid back, snappy verse...a veritable smorgasbord of poetical delights.
