And the Rest of me Floats opening at Bush Theatre will be an ‘anarchic celebration’ of gender expression
A new play which starts tomorrow at Bush Theatre will explore gender and sexuality in an ‘anarchic celebration’ of expression.
And the Rest of me Floats will see performers from across the trans, non-binary, and queer communities weave together autobiographical performance, movement, pop songs, stand-up and dress-up until March 16.
The piece was devised by Outbox Theatre, who have been making theatre since 2010 in collaboration with LGBTQ+ performers, artists and communities to tell new stories.
The play is directed by Ben Buratta, founder and director of Outbox Theatre, and the cast includes Josh-Susan Enright, Barry Fitzgerald, Elijah W Harris.

There will be a post-show Q&A with cast and creatives following the evening performance on 26 February. There are also audio-described and captioned performances.
