F*ck the Polar bears

Book now for F*ck the Polar Bears, the rentrée play at the Bush this September. Tanya Ronder (National Theatre – Dara, Liolà, Table) has been commissioned by the theatre to write this funny and surreal new family drama about the power of the individual in a world obscured by politics. Gordon has worked hard to get where he is. He’s on the verge of a massive promotion at one of the ‘Big Six’ energy companies. His wife Serena has worked hard too, and now dreams of a bigger house, a slimmer body, a happier life. The family appear to be cooking on gas. But behind their perfect front door, light bulbs are blowing, the drains keep blocking, and a phone inexplicably refuses to charge. Not to mention that daughter Rachel’s adored toy polar bear is nowhere to be found. Could be set in most family homes in Notting Hill. On from 11th September – 24th October with some Saturday and Wedensday matinees. bushtheatre.
