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.

Bush Staff Recommends: LGBT+ Artists

February is an exciting time for reflection on all things LGBT+ as we celebrate communities past and present. Heterosexist society has meant that the great contributions of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Asexual, Non-Binary and Intersex individuals have been systematically down-played, or entirely erased. LGBT+ History Month is a fantastic opportunity to combat this, sparking discussion and opening powerful…
