PUMPGIRL

Sold out

There's one in every town, and they call her the Pumpgirl. She works


in the garage, changes the oil and thinks she's one of the lads. She's


sweet on 'No-helmet' Hammy, but he loves no-one but himself. He's


out all night with his racing boys, whilst wife Sinead's off on a


joyride of her own, with an ache that's about to be cured.

A turbo-charged race through the diesel fumes and country music of the Armagh badlands, Mike Bradwell directs an exhilarating tale of humour and horror by a major new voice in Irish writing. Abbie Spallen's explosively comic new play takes us deep into the unspoken thoughts and darkest desires of three lives destined to collide.

Work Experience Diary | Myla “I honestly hadn’t the slightest idea what to expect”

Myla took part in a week of work experience at the Bush. Here she recounts her experience of reading scripts, booking the Artistic Director’s international travel and helping manage a front of house crisis. As I walked up the stairs to the entrance to Bush Theatre, I honestly hadn’t the slightest idea what to expect…
