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.

This is a past event 29 Jun 2015 to 01 Jul 2015

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…
