Presented by Chicken Pox Fox in association with the Bush Theatre as part of RADAR 2013

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.

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.

Brown Bird is the new one woman show from the critically acclaimed company behind Donna Disco, ‘like Carrie re-written by Morrissey’ (Fest).

From the author who brought Chalet Lines to the Bush Theatre.

Rachael Merry: The BSL access is ‘rooted in the telling of the story’

Zia Ahmed’s tender, funny, lyrical play about finding love and holding onto it with everything you have is keen to cross boundaries. Vital to the three-hander is Rachael Merry, who uses BSL interpretation to convey the poetic beauty of Ahmed’s language . Rachael talks to us about the show, language, and the role of accessibility…

Lauren Clancy: “What can our next government do for the arts?”

In two days’ time the country will head to the polls to decide who our next government will be. While this will be a pivotal moment for the nation in many ways, at the Bush we are keenly aware of the shared responsibility of the sector to ensure arts and culture sit firm on our…
