The Bush Theatre presents non zero one

Allow your curiosity to lead you through the building that has been the home of the Bush for the last 40 years. Stolen kisses in the corner, furrowed brows on the fire escape, those final deep breaths before lines are spoken for the first time – encounter the past and dance with the future – what will you take from this place, and what will you leave behind?

this is where we got to when you came in is an interactive journey through the Bush Theatre, giving participants the chance to take their last, or perhaps even first, steps around the building before its doors close after 4 decades of performances.
