    Now we’re throwing them open.”

    A hole in the ground. Three women are forcing their way out.
    They’re singing. They’re moving. They’re taking up space. And they refuse to apologise.

    You came here to look.
    We’re giving you something to watch.”

  • Lands
    Lands
    Bush Theatre

    Leah and Sophie have been together, here, for a long time. They are happy here.

    But there’s a problem. There’s a fucking massive problem and soon they’re going to have to talk about it.

    The award-winning Antler return with a playful, intimate dissection of a relationship teetering on the edge of collapse.

This moving play arrives at the Bush following a sell-out run at the Edinburgh Fringe 2017.
