Sold out
Part of RADAR 2015

Pheasant Plucker

by Lily Bevan

web crop

Fresh from a sell-out run at Underbelly, Edinburgh 2015, this is the story of a bird handler who has thrown down her gauntlet; a soaring tale of avian antics.

Is laughter really the best medicine? Isn’t medicine the best medicine? Yoga? Scandinavian design? Buns? Sticking to your guns? Plucking pheasants till the pheasant plucking’s done? Imaginative. Not about Tinder. Worth a look.

Debut solo show from the writer of Talking to Strangers (BBC Radio 4), Mock Tudor (Pleasance 2014), Café Red (Trafalgar Studios). Funny Women semi-finalist 2014


In a Vulnerable Place

by Steve Waters
presented by the Bush Theatre

‘Has the world changed or have I changed?’

Returning to the Bush after his prophetic diptych of plays The Contingency Plan, playwright Steve Waters takes to the stage for a one-man show that tells the story of a very personal journey into the reality of climate change.

From the near-to to the far-flung, Waters has spoken with people in the Norfolk Broads and in Mongolia. He meets reed-cutters and camel-herders, twitchers and nomads; he meets the man who saved village and visits in prison a man who saved a river. While what he finds is often troubling, there is humour and hope that emerges from a world where there’s ‘so much left to fight for’.
