Reading Group

Sold out

Join members of the local community to discuss a current play text.

A relaxed time of reading, listening and discussion which makes the Reading Group a great place to meet people in and around Shepherd’s Bush.

This term we will be reading the text of our current production Leave Taking by Winsome Pinnock. You don’t need to be a strong reader or have any acting experience.

The group is led by the Bush Community Producer, Holly Smith, in partnership with The Reader. It will be held in our Reading Room.

Please only book if you are a resident or worker in the Hammersmith & Fulham Borough.

The group will continue to meet regularly throughout the term at the Bush Theatre on 22 May, 29 May, 5 June, 12 June, 19 June and 26 June.

The Bush Reading Group is run in partnership with The Reader.

This is a past event 21 Mar 2017 to 22 May 2018

Meet the Cast: Jellyfish by Ben Weatherill

Meet the cast of Jellyfish. It’s the story of a first kiss, chips by the beach and coming of age with Down’s Syndrome in a seaside town. “I know what people say. How they treat us. But that’s their problem. No one else should give a fuck.” Kelly likes dirty jokes and finding creatures washed up…
