Book Now for Bush Theatre's New 32 Degrees West Season
Named after angle from current front door to new home in library
The Bush Theatre is now accepting bookings for its new 32 Degrees West Season.
The season has been so named because 32 degrees is the angle from the front door of the company’s current home of 39 years, to its new home at the old Library in Shepherd’s Bush, where the theatre will relocate this autumn.
Ahead of the building’s inaugural season later this year, the company will throw open the doors of the new venue and invite the public to play a part in the transformation of the space, from library to theatre, in a production entitled Where's My Seat?
And as a final farewell to the theatre’s long term home, the Bush will present interactive performance group non zero one and their production this is where we got to when you came in, to celebrate the history of this unique and special space.
Artistic director Josie Rourke will leave the Bush Theatre at the end of 2011, once the company is established in its new home at the old library on the Uxbridge Road, leaving the legacy of a new theatre for the incoming Artistic Director – this position will be advertised in due course.
Josie leaves the company after four years to become the new Artistic Director of the Donmar Warehouse. She says: " My final nine months at the Bush will see the company open its new home ready for the theatre's fortieth anniversary in 2012.
"This will also mark five years in which I have led a resilient and inspiring team, who faced down adversity to present the work of some exceptional playwrights and build and serve our audiences.
"The legacy of 40 years of brilliant plays and great nights out at the Bush will be realised in this beautiful building. I look forward with great excitement to taking the Bush into its next incarnation ..."
