About the festival

Running July 31st- August 26th 2019, the season will be formed of nine shows, each piece demonstrating HighTide and Assembly Festival's shared vision for new writing as a space of political, contemporary and provocative work, created by new, diverse artists.

The centrepiece production is Rust by Kenny Emson, a HighTide / Bush Theatre production directed by Eleanor Rhode. Rust will then transfer to HighTide Festivals Aldeburgh and Walthamstow.

Disruption references the type of shows in the season, and the approach to producing them.

Unlike the traditional process of play commissioning, HighTide are now welcoming applications from independent theatremakers to co-produce two productions in the season with HighTide, followed by transfers to HighTide Festivals Aldeburgh and Walthamstow.


Starts:Wednesday 31 July 2019

Ends:Monday 26 August 2019
