Perseverance DriveThe Gillard family prepares for the funeral of their mother Grace in Perseverance Drive, a new play by Robin Soans set in Barbados and Leytonstone. Tensions ignite as Josh, cast out for being gay, arrives in Barbados after 6 years of excommunication. Bush Artistic Director Madani Younis directs this epic family story told in a witty and uplifting way.

 

About Bush Theatre

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.
