The small but infinitely punchy Bush Theatre programmes a raft of demanding, strong new writing.

Having finally moved from its notoriously tiny Shepherd's Bush Green venue in 2012, the Bush Theatre is still fulfilling its role as one of London's smallest major theatres in its new home in the old Shepherd's Bush Library. The 144-seat venue is run by Madani Younis, who has kept the programming diverse, but given it a more social bent than his comedy-focussed predecessor Josie Rourke.

The theatre also continues on its search for and support of new writing with the Bush Green initiative, which allows unsolicited playscript submissions.

Ticket prices are in the £15-£20 mark and there are usually concessions and offers on shows, including the three for two season offer. Locals and students also get discounts.

The cosy, welcoming bar and cafe, with its floor to ceiling bookshelves filled with play texts, reminds a little of the original library and the cafe serves up some nice light bites and has free wifi.

At last a complete unit! Vibrant Theater! Nice vibration! Great Cafe Bar, Interesting people! Only two blocks away from my gaff! Shepherds Bush feels comfy now and a lot sexier!
