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!
