RADAR DOUBLE BILL: Brown Bird & Chalk Farm

Sold out

Brown Bird
by Lee Mattinson

One woman. One secret. And One Direction.

 

Brown Owl Beth is the model Brown Owl. She’s selfless, sensible and everyone comes second to her sixes. But when ten year old Phoebe becomes the new addition to her proud nest, Beth’s commitment to a good deed every day is tested to breaking point.
Because Brown Owl Beth brings about a chain of events from which her community may never recover, one which may leave this bird with more than broken wings.

Chalk Farm
by AJ Taudevin and Kieran Hurley

Award-winning playwrights Kieran Hurley and AJ Taudevin, join forces with highly-acclaimed ThickSkin (Blackout, The Static), in this explosive new play about love and blame in the aftermath of the 2011 London riots.
Through a mother’s desire for safety and acceptance and a young boy’s need to be recognised, to be part of something, Chalk Farm offers an uncompromising and ultimately heartbreaking examination of a fractured society.

A point marked in time when it all began to crack, when the game is over, when the surface is ripped open showing what the world really looks like. And we were there.

Chalk Farm features ThickSkin’s trademark style of heart-stopping visual theatre, fusing multi-media, movement and text. Please note that Chalk Farm has a 14+ age restriction.

DATES AND DETAILS
Friday 15 & Saturday 16 November, 7.30pm, £15 (£13 concessions and £10 Bush Connect tickets)
Price of ticket includes admission to both shows.

Work Experience Diary | Annie: “This is exactly the place to be to feel supported for new ideas and work”

Our work experience student Annie reflects on her week with us. Some could say I was thrown into the deep end when I was given my desk to borrow for the week. I can assure you that I definitely wasn’t but still, sitting in the Bush’s Artistic Director’s desk space felt somewhat daunting. As Lynette…
