We've got big plans this year…

This Place We Know

See events

Meeting, information point and box office located at Shepherd’s Bush Boutique Hotel, 11/12 Poplar Mews, London W12 7JS. Open from 26 September.

The Uxbridge Road is one of the longest and most diverse roads in Europe and has been the Bush’s home for the last 4 years.

In an extraordinary love-letter to its home, This Place We Know brings together a series of specially-commissioned short plays to be performed in borrowed spaces along this West London artery.

Discover stories of heartbreak, joy, loss and retribution in pubs, churches and karaoke bars. At times funny, mysterious and foreboding, each is an intimate tale woven into the fabric of the city by the hottest new writers.

Bush Locals get two £10 tickets per show. Log in to access your discounted tickets!

This Place We Know is supported by the MA Dramatic Writing at Drama Centre London at Central Saint Martins. It is kindly sponsored by members of the 144 Club, to find out more and how to join click here

The Bush Theatre is proud to be working in partnership with Artistic Directors of the Future, the UK’s first BAME-led arts organisation dedicated to creating change at leadership level in mainstream producing theatres across the UK.
