The Bush Theatre will present the new play from Barney Norris from the 26th April.
Opening the theatre’s new studio space While We’re Here is the latest play from Barney Norris and is a co-production between Up In Arms, Bush Theatre and Farnham Maltings.
Eddie and Carol were lovers once, but their lives went in different directions. Now they meet again in a town full of memories, and find something still burns between them.
On the country’s southern margin where the towns give way to the English Channel, both search for the centre of their lives. Will they find a way to let go of the past for the sake of their futures?
The cast will include Tessa Peake-Jones and Andrew French, directed by Alice Hamilton who has previously directed Visitors (Arcola Theatre/ Bush Theatre/ National Tour) and Eventide (Arcola/ National Tour).
