RADAR 2013

Sold out

This November RADAR returns to the Bush Theatre, following the success of the inaugural festival in 2012

RADAR 2012 showcased electrifying performances including Keiran Hurley’s Beats, and Michaela Coel’s award-winning Chewing Gum Dreams. The festival brought together more than a hundred talented artists and leading theatre-makers from across the country, and provoked challenging debate about the future of new writing.

This year’s festival will shine a spotlight on the hottest new writing talent of today and explore the urgent questions facing theatre in this moment and beyond. Join the company for a range of stimulating talks, intriguing sneak peeks and inspiring shows.
