When Edinburgh Comedy Award Winner Richard Gadd (Monkey See Monkey Do) offers a free cup of tea to a stranger, what appears to be a trivial interaction has ramifications far wider than he could ever have imagined.

Ahead of a world premiere at the Edinburgh Fringe this summer, here’s your chance to see a preview of Baby Reindeer before it’s full run in October. An unmissable debut play and chilling personal narrative exploring obsession, delusion, and the aftermath of a chance encounter, the show is directed by Olivier Award Winner Jon Brittain (Rotterdam).

On Monday 16th March 2020, like most venues across the city, we closed our doors in the wake of the Covid-19 Pandemic. It was a difficult time for us and we weren’t sure how things were going to pan out, but looking back I’m proud that the Bush team found ways to keep connected with…
