Rainbow Class

by Vivienne Acheampong 

Primary School has changed. It isn’t all “Wheels on the Bus” and “Stuck in the Mud”, there’s a lot more going on behind those school gates. Kids say the funniest things, and so do the adults who work with them.

Former primary school teacher Vivienne Acheampong gives you a comic insight into the goings on in an inner-city London primary school in this one woman character comedy show.
You’ll meet a range of characters including Ty’Quan, the ‘challenging boy’ of the school, Mrs Marshall the heavily pregnant overworked teacher and Miss Sheila a not so politically correct dinner lady are just to name a few. With verbatim extracts from both adults and pupils, join these colourful characters who will take you on a journey at Tiddlesworth Primary School.


In a Vulnerable Place

‘Has the world changed or have I changed?’

Returning to the Bush after his prophetic diptych of plays The Contingency Plan, playwright Steve Waters takes to the stage for a one-man show that tells the story of a very personal journey into the reality of climate change.

From the near-to to the far-flung, Waters has spoken with people in the Norfolk Broads and in Mongolia. He meets reed-cutters and camel-herders, twitchers and nomads; he meets the man who saved village and visits in prison a man who saved a river. While what he finds is often troubling, there is humour and hope that emerges from a world where there’s ‘so much left to fight for’.
