Sixty-Six Books, one hundred and thirty actors, one new theatre

Two hundred artists from across the World will be descending on W12 to ply their trade at the newly housed Bush Theatre next month in what's being described as an "epic performance cycle" centred on the King James Bible which is apparently 400 years old this year.

Inspired by this auspicious birthday the play "66 books" is set to be one of Artistic Director Josie Rourke's last acts at the Bush Theatre before she leaves for pastures new. And as part of the Theatre's admirable attempt to connect with the Bush anew this is being treated as another innovative way of inviting the audience to participate and learn more about the culture house we have on our doorstep - here's what they promise to their guests:
"Sixty-Six Books will begin and end with two epic twenty-four hour events on the 14th and 28th of October where you can experience all the sixty-six responses and spend the night exploring our new home from the attic to the cellar.  You can relax between shows in our front room, or party the night away at the new Bush bar. We'll keep you going with tasty food, drinks, and a special goodie bag".
 Sixty Six Books will run from the 10th-29th October.
