Take One

A night of spoken word in our Library
Sold out

In true fringe festival style, Take One brings you bite-size chunks of new work from an eclectic mix of poets and spoken word artists. Each night will present different works in progress of between 10 and 40 minutes, chosen from open submissions alongside invited special guests. 

Take One gives artists a safe and supportive scratch environment in which to move work out of the rehearsal room and on to the stage for the first time. This is a milestone in the making of any new show, and audience feedback is integral to development. So come along, chew it over, and tell us what you think!

Take One is presented by Apples and Snakes, a leading organisation for performance poetry.

Lauren Clancy: “What can our next government do for the arts?”

In two days’ time the country will head to the polls to decide who our next government will be. While this will be a pivotal moment for the nation in many ways, at the Bush we are keenly aware of the shared responsibility of the sector to ensure arts and culture sit firm on our…

Bijan Sheibani: Drama is a means of finding our truer selves

I have been asked in the past whether male vulnerability is a running theme in my work.  Barber Shop Chronicles and The Brothers Size, two plays I recently directed, and my play The Arrival, all look at the way men open themselves up to one another and the difficulties men have in doing that.
