the pulse of new writing

“I love RADAR’s eclecticism. I love its sense of adventure. And I love its refusal to pin theatre down in any way.” The Guardian’s Matt Trueman

Now in its fourth year, the Bush Theatre’s annual festival returns this November to feel the pulse of the new writing world and shine a spotlight on our hottest emerging and established talent.

Hand-picked and curated, as ever, by the Bush Theatre creative team, a night at RADAR 2015 promises to be an adventure like no other in the theatrical world.

Heterosexist society has meant that the great contributions of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Asexual, Non-Binary and Intersex individuals have been systematically down-played, or entirely erased.
