TAKE ME AWAY

Sold out

'And she wasn't a very loving mother either. I mean she never made rice krispie buns – do you know what I mean?'

Eddie and his sons are creatures of the night shift – it's the days that give them trouble. Bren (the love child) surfs the net alone. Andy (planned) can't confirm the whereabouts of his girlfriend and son. Kev (the mistake) isn't throwing his money around like the IT whizzkid they take him for. A duty visit to their mother in hospital requires them to act like model siblings; but confusion around her illness and her mysterious good news become the fuel for this unsettling comedy which charts the meltdown of a family of men caught in the claw of the Celtic tiger.

Work Experience Diary | Myla “I honestly hadn’t the slightest idea what to expect”

Myla took part in a week of work experience at the Bush. Here she recounts her experience of reading scripts, booking the Artistic Director’s international travel and helping manage a front of house crisis. As I walked up the stairs to the entrance to Bush Theatre, I honestly hadn’t the slightest idea what to expect…
