First Time Voters

The Bush Theatre, nabokov and Drywrite present First Time Voters, a project inspired by the young people for whom 6 May 2010 is the first chance to have their say in how the country is run.

Developed through workshop sessions with young people from Hammersmith and Fulham, First Time Voters will be performed at the Bush on the day before the polls open, Wednesday 5 May. As the country prepares to head to the polling stations, we’ll be giving young voters a voice, from the engaged to the apathetic, the sceptical to the passionate, the confused to the informed.

Join us for a fascinating evening of stimulating new writing, exploring what it means to be a first time voter in 2010.
