An unmissable holiday season this December at Bush Theatre

For the first time ever Bush Theatre brings you an unmissable holiday season of cabaret, comedy and theatre curated by Victoria Falconer, which runs from 10 – 22 Dec.

We’ll be serving up a multiplicity of artists, skilled in circus, puppetry, drag, political satire, making you laugh so much your sides hurt, and general “bad-assery”.

Victoria is an award-winning cabaret artist, multi-instrumentalist, composer and collaborator. She is twice winner of the Adelaide Fringe Best Cabaret Award (EastEnd Cabaret 2012 & Fringe Wives Club 2018), crowned one of Time Out London’s Top 10 Cabaret Superstars and named on the h100 list in 2014 as one of the top influential and innovative artists working in the UK creative industries.

There must be magic in the atmosphere By Benedict Lombe

Benedict Lombe from our Emerging Writers Group writes about diasporic experience. It’s 3am. I’m sitting in my room wolfing down a pack of Doritos and thinking about the night I just had.

Rachael Merry: The BSL access is ‘rooted in the telling of the story’

Zia Ahmed’s tender, funny, lyrical play about finding love and holding onto it with everything you have is keen to cross boundaries. Vital to the three-hander is Rachael Merry, who uses BSL interpretation to convey the poetic beauty of Ahmed’s language . Rachael talks to us about the show, language, and the role of accessibility…
