“As theatre anxiously awaits news of what will happen at the end of the current lockdown, brave theatres are rehearsing shows and getting ready to re-open. One of those is the brilliant Bush which has had a strong online presence throughout the shutdown, and which plans to re-open its doors on December 8 with a brand-new show. It’s written by Travis Alabanza, whose hard-hitting Burgerz was seen in London and Edinburgh last year. Former Bunker associate Debbie Hannan (incoming joint AD at the Traverse in Edinburgh) directs a monologue which features Reece Lyons. She plays Rosie, a young woman taking refuge in the flooded cubicle of a women’s toilet who is trying to keep her head above water as she recalls past bathroom encounters.”


Cornered into a flooding toilet cubicle and determined not to be rescued again, Rosie distracts herself with memories of bathroom encounters, drunken heart-to-hearts by dirty sinks, friendships forged in front of crowded mirrors, and hiding from trouble.

But with her panic rising and no help on its way, can she keep her head above water?

From internationally acclaimed writer and one of the UK’s most prominent trans voices, Travis Alabanza (Burgerz), comes a hilarious and devastating tour of women’s bathrooms.
