Beyond the Bush
The Bush Theatre has produced hundreds of groundbreaking premieres since its inception in 1972. Many of which have gone on to become established names in theatre.
As well as major performances, they also champion the introduction of new talent to the industry, whilst continuing to attract major acting and directing talents. The Bush has won over 100 awards and developed an enviable reputation for touring its acclaimed productions nationally and internationally.
The Bush receives more than 1,500 scripts every year and reads and responds to them all. This is one small part of a comprehensive playwrights development programme that nurtures the relationship between writer and director, as well as playwright residencies and commissions. Everything that they do to develop playwrights focuses them towards a production on their stage or beyond.
They have also launched an ambitious new education, training and professional development programme, providing opportunities for different sectors of the community and professionals to access the expertise of Bush playwrights, directors, designers, technicians and actors, and to play an active role in influencing the future development of the theatre and its programme.
