A new initiative from the Bush Theatre sees the fortnightly release of new monologues from a diverse group of writers including Travis Alabanza, Natasha Brown, Shaun Dunne, Sophie Ellerby and Tristan Fynn-Aiduenu. The first one is Skype d8 by Burgerz writer Travis Alabanza and stars Ibinabo Jack as an on-line dating negotiating the pitfalls of making a connection in time of isolation. All the shows will remain on-line for a year once they are released.
A man is left on hold by his high-flying boyfriend. An influencer’s live-stream glitches into troubling memories. Someone sits on the edge of their bed, haunted by the end of a relationship. Our Monday Monologues series brings you new work from the most exciting UK and Irish writers, including Travis Alabanza, Natasha Brown, Shaun Dunne, Sophie Ellerby and Tristan Fynn-Aiduenu. Written and recorded during the lockdown, the monologues will be released fortnightly from 18 May and will be available to watch for the next 12 months. With no box office income it’s a difficult time for theatre. If you enjoy these films and would like to support our work now and into the future, you can do so by clicking the 'Watch Now' button.
