Olivier nominated actress Cush Jumbo stars in her debut play, Josephine & I, which is performed cabaret style at the Bush Theatre with live music and dance bringing the story of the 1920s performer and political activist, Josephine Baker to life. Jumbo is reunited with Phyllida Lloyd (The Iron Lady, Mamma Mia! on stage and on screen) who directed the all-female Julius Caesar at the Donmar Warehouse, in which the actress played Mark Antony. The play intertwines the story of a contemporary girl with that of Josephine Baker. Running time has been extended to 17th August before the play even opens due to demand for tickets, with extra Wednesday matinees added on 24th July, 7th and 14th August.
London's essential theatre for new writing has been the first step into the big time for dozens of Britain's best playwrights. Challenging, disturbing and original works are often accepted by the Bush Theatre, and find their way to the West End. Moving from the room above O'Neill's pub in Shepherds Bush Green to the former Shepherd's Bush Library building on Uxbridge Road in 2011, the theatre acquired larger premises as well as a laid back bar/library and cafe (open Monday to Saturday, 8am to 11pm), worth a visit even if you're not here to watch a play.
