Perched alongside the Uxbridge Road in Shepherds Bush, the Bush Theatre is an established powerhouse of new writing. The theatre receives in excess of 2,000 scripts per year, each of which is carefully read and considered for production at the theatre itself. Literary agents sling most scripts to the theatre, but twice a year, Bush Theatre accepts unsolicited submissions in an attempt to give every budding playwright a chance. The theatre also annually hosts a new playwriting event known as RADAR; one noteworthy play from the 2014 event was Standby for Tape Back-Up by Ross Sutherland. Playwright Barney Norris’ Visitors is showing at Bush Theatre until January 10.
