The Bush Theatre hosts The Invisible, Rebecca Lenkiewicz’s new play about the current government’s reforms to the provision of legal aid.
Following cuts totalling £350m, many ordinary people will find their access to justice restricted as their entitlement to free legal aid is withdrawn. Based on interviews with real people at all levels of the British justice system, the production aims to tell the stories of those ordinary people affected by the reforms and examine how these cuts are driving deeper cracks into the fabric of our society.
In 2008, Rebecca Lenkiewicz became the first living female playwright to have her work produced on the Olivier stage at the National Theatre with Her Naked Skin.
The Invisible plays in a season of four productions dealing with struggles for justice.
