Sold out

Following on from the success of 50 Ways to Leave your Lover and 50 Ways to Leave your Lover at Christmas, the Bush has commissioned five of London's hottest new Playwrights Zawe Ashton, James Graham, Joel Horwood, Morgan Lloyd Malcolm and Michelle Terry for our next audience inspired summer romp suddenlossofdignity.com.

You can insure your car, your luggage and your pets against loss: why not your dignity? suddenlossofdignity.com lets you do just that. Make your claim and we'll send you back others' tales of humiliation and ignominy to cheer you up. Our crack team of playwrights will then use our favourite stories (anonymously of course) to create a show that will make you laugh, cry, cringe, and hold your head up high once more.

For all those of you who have unwittingly tucked your skirt into your knickers, pestered your ex with drink-and-dial or decided that your sister's wedding was the ideal time to try your hand at breakdancing, suddenlossofdignity.com is the ideal collective therapy – hilarious, revealing and oddly touching.

Come all ye undignified, you have nothing left to lose.
