The Bush is a world-famous home for new plays and an internationally renowned champion of playwrights.

They discover, nurture and produce the best new playwrights from the widest range of backgrounds, and present their work to the highest possible standards. The Bush team look for exciting new voices that tell contemporary stories with wit, style and passion and we champion work that is both provocative and entertaining.

The Bush has produced hundreds of groundbreaking premieres since its inception in 1972, many of them Bush commissions, and hosted guest productions by leading companies and artists from across the world.

The Bush is widely acclaimed as the seedbed for the best new playwrights, many of whom have gone on to become established names. We also champion the introduction of new talent to the industry, whilst continuing to attract major acting and directing talents. The Bush has won more than 100 awards, and developed an enviable reputation for touring its acclaimed productions nationally and internationally.

A great quiet place with Random furniture and shelves lined with old plays. The coffee is good and £2 for a latte. Try the brie and chutney toastie as well. Avoid the coffee chains and come here instead. more
