Bush Theatre Throws Open Doors of Old Library
Public invited to play a part in transforming new venue
The Bush Theatre is busy preparing for its next production Where's My Seat? which will open on June 15 and run until July 2 at its new home in the Old Library.
Where's My Seat? is part of its new 32 Degrees West Season, so named because 32 degrees is the angle from the front door of the company’s current home of 39 years, to the Old Library at 7 Uxbridge Road.
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.
The theatre says over the course of one evening, you’ll see three short plays by three brilliant Bush playwrights performed in three different layouts.
Each play will be inspired by nine curious props chosen by the National Theatre and a set of challenging stage directions created by Alan Ayckbourn, Michael Grandage and Bush Artistic Director Josie Rourke.
As the stage transforms and the seats move around, we’ll ask you to feedback your views from the stalls – and to put to test other areas of the building from the backstage to the bar.
You can track the progress of Where's My Seat on the theatre's blog.
