THE GREAT BRITISH COUNTRY FETE

by Russell Kane
Sold out

“Everyone agrees that the Bush’s Latitude productions are unmissable”
The Times

Following on from 50 Ways to Leave Your Lover and suddenlossofdignity.com, this year’s summer romp brings you a field full of feisty fun and village politics.

A British institution – the country fete. Home to fascist jam makers, murderous marrow growers, ‘special’ Brownies and enough bunting to cause a national fabric shortage. It’s a pillar of country life, a melting pot of personalities, and the British summer wouldn’t be the same without it.

Join the Bush for a feted day. Skittles will scatter, some fruit will spoil, and someone will tread dog poo through the tea tent. Do not shy away, but come coconuting along to this irrestible summer punch of stories and song.

Russell Kane, famous nationwide for his Perrier award-winning stand up shows and his hilarious Fakespeare plays, teams up with award-winning composer and lyricist Michael Bruce and Bush Associate Director Anthea Williams (suddenlossofdignity.com and 50 Ways to Leave Your Lover).

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…
