Bush Theatre, Shepherds Bush
The Bush Theatre is based in Shepherd's Bush, in the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham. It was established in 1972 above The Bush public house, and has since become one of the most celebrated new writing theatres in the world. An intimate venue renowned for its close-up storytelling, the theatre holds a maximum audience of approximately 80. In 2007 the Bush Theatre appointed Josie Rourke its Artistic Director.
The Bush runs a Writers Development Programme, with an open script submissions policy, and reads over 1,000 scripts each year. The theatre looks for exciting new voices that tell contemporary stories with wit, style and passion, and champions work that is both provocative and entertaining.
