The Bush Theatre is a world-famous home for new plays and an internationally renowned champion of playwrights.
The venue aims to discover, nurture and produce the best new playwrights from the widest range of backgrounds, and present work to the highest possible standards. They actively look for exciting new voices that tell contemporary stories with wit, style and passion, and champion work that is both provocative and entertaining.
The Bush Theatre has produced numerous groundbreaking premieres since its inception in 1972, many of them original commissions, and hosted guest productions by leading companies and artists from across the world. Many of its new playwrights have gone on to become established names.
In March 2017, the Bush Theatre reopened following a year-long £4.3million renovation by architects Haworth Tompkins. The redevelopment includes a brand new studio space, rehearsal room, entrance and front-of-house area as well as an exterior garden terrace.
