Tales of the White City

Sold out

As part of RADAR 2013, the Bush Theatre is delighted to screen Tales of the White City, a moving and original film created for BBC Outreach by Benjamin Till with the people of the White City Estate and produced by LandSky.

Join us for an evening celebrating our local community with a party in the bar, free screenings of Tales of the White City in the auditorium and a post-show Q&A (7.30 performance only) with the director and producer of the film.

Over 500 local people were involved in the film, which was created to help celebrate the community spirit and diversity of the people who live on the White City estate – an area of London which the BBC and the Bush Theatre have been closely linked to for many years. Tales of the White City is a unique, uplifting film which contains moving performances and real life stories.

Featuring tales from the lives of individuals and with lead performances from eleven local characters who contributed their own lyrics, the musical includes stories such as the enduring love of an older couple and life at a local Egyptian restaurant. Performances include poetry, dancing and a song from 400 children from three different local primary schools, with words written by the children themselves.

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…
