This October, the Bush Theatre will open the doors to its new home with Sixty-Six Books, an epic performance cycle featuring over 100 artists from across the globe.

From Jeanette Winterson to Jack Thorne, Carol Ann Duffy to the Archbishop of Canterbury, Billy Bragg to Wole Soyinka, sixty-six writers from a huge range of backgrounds and disciplines have made a contemporary response to some of the oldest stories ever told. In 2011, the 400th anniversary year of the publication of the King James Bible, each book of this great English work is spoken to by a remarkable range of playwrights, poets, songwriters, novelists and comedians from all faiths and none, from over a dozen countries and across five continents.

Extraordinary opportunity to see 130 wonderful actors perform on one stage (which you're never more than 5m from). Some scripts are better than others, and the New Testament seemed a better spark for creativity than the Old, but overall, amazing.
