“RADAR is one of the most open, honest theatre festivals you’re likely to come across.” Spoonfed

Now in its third year, the Bush Theatre’s annual festival returns to shine a spotlight on the hottest new writing talent from around the world. Featuring stimulating talks, stirring sneak peeks and inspiring shows, RADAR explores the urgent questions facing theatre in this moment and beyond.

This year, RADAR presents five of the most exciting and innovative new shows from across the UK, as well as a series of late-night events, debates and show cases of works in progress. Artists include Hetain Patel, Chris Thorpe and Brigitte Aphrodite alongside companies including Unlimited Theatre, Lip Sink, Two Destination Language and Bush alumni Associate Artists Iron Shoes.
