STREET VOICES 3 – RE-WRITING PLAYWRITING

Sold out

Over the course of two nights at the Bush, Freedom Studios presents the work of some of the most exciting new playwrights in Yorkshire. 8 writers, 4 directors, 12 actors, 8 plays and a panoramic view of contemporary Britain as reflected by a new generation of theatre makers.

As the performances unfold, you will be entertained by stories that are sometimes personal, sometimes absurd and sometimes fantastic. Each play provides a slice of life, a personal vision of the world.

We will invite you the audience to play the part of critic, advocate and agent to decide which play(s) you would like to see further developed and supported into a seventy-minute touring play.

The writers were selected as a result of an open call for submissions and have all attended Street Voices 3, an intensive writing course led by Madani Younis, Artistic Director of Freedom Studios.

Playwrighting Workshop with Madani Younis
Madani Younis, Playwright and Artistic Director of Freedom Studios will be running a playwriting workshop for budding playwrights at The Bush Theatre’s new library site on Monday 29th November from 2pm – 5pm. For more information on the workshop please click here

Bush Staff Recommends: LGBT+ Artists

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…
