Revolution Square

Sold out

“Who can beat the devil but God and all the angels?”

December 2011, Russia saw the largest series of demonstrations and protests since the collapse of the Soviet Union 22 years ago. More than 100,000 people took to the streets in temperatures as low as -20C to protest against widespread fraud and an increasingly authoritarian government. On March 4, Vladimir Putin was re-elected for his third term as President against a background of further corruption and repression.

Acclaimed theatre company Jericho is collaborating with the Bush Theatre to develop a piece responding to these crucial recent events. Writer and director Jonathan Holmes is working with designer Lucy Wilkinson and three performers to create the foundations for this thrilling new project. Witness the early stages of this production that will explore what is currently happening in Russia, as well as the historical roots of the crisis.

Bush Staff Recommends: LGBT+ Artists

February is an exciting time for reflection on all things LGBT+ as we celebrate communities past and present. Heterosexist society has meant that the great contributions of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Asexual, Non-Binary and Intersex individuals have been systematically down-played, or entirely erased. LGBT+ History Month is a fantastic opportunity to combat this, sparking discussion and opening powerful…
