Can't make Copenhagen? Here's The Contingency Plan

As the politicians gather in Copenhagen, The Bush is reviving Steve Waters' devastating critique of climate change policy THE CONTINGENCY PLAN.

First produced at the Bush in 2009, the original cast is reunited for two special readings to mark the UN Climate Change Conference on 15 and 18 December.

If you didn't catch it on stage earlier this year, beat a path. It's one of the finest new plays of 2009 and it packs a punch to make even the oil-hungriest politicians take note. 

We've got a special offer for you lovely blog readers. It's 2 for 1 tickets when you book by phone on 020 8743 5050 and quote “nabokov offer”. Do it.

SEA WALL returns to London

The incredible SEA WALL by Simon Stephens, directed by our AD George, returns to London next week for ten performances following its sell-out Edinburgh run at The Traverse in the summer.

If you haven't seen it yet, beat a path to The Bush at The Library to see Andrew Scott's breathtaking performance. You can buy tickets here.

SEA WALL is part of the launch of The Bush at the Library - a new script reference library which will be housed at 7 Uxbridge Road, Shepherds Bush, W12 8LJ from 5 October. Drop by to browse through an extensive collection of scripts and performing arts related books.

And if you haven't seen 2ND MAY 1997 yet, you can see both SEA WALL (6:30pm) and 2ND MAY 1997 (7:30PM) in one evening on Wednesday 7 October only.
