I Wanna Be Yours at the Bush Theatre

We move in opposite orbits. In the middle, we come together. We kiss.

Ella is a Northern Yorkshire lass. Haseeb is from London. They have a meal, pizza. A glass of the house wine for Ella, Haseeb just has hot chocolate. They are falling in love.

Two people, two places, two cultures. Christmas and Eid, Leeds and London, Travelcards and Megabuses. But love isn’t as simple as two people coming together, especially not when no one is talking about the elephant in the room. 

I Wanna Be Yours is a touching and humorous play about finding love and not letting go of it. This poetic debut play by Zia Ahmed is fully BSL integrated.

We loved the three actors and the way they interacted with each other (the signing was great and added a lot.) Some huge themes covered in a short space of time, and just a very joyful experience. Thanks!

A bit obsessive about 'difference' for me. The couple had a 'good thing going'... Perhaps the end should have seen them rise above the opinions of others - thereby creating a positive message as opposed to the current ending...

Intimate venue/performance which made you feel almost part of the play. Well acted, easily understood with some relevent issues handled in a thought provoking way. Left feeling how others might perceive my actions which I wouldn't have thought about previously. Seating a bit uncomfortable but understandable in a community environment, very accessible from tube, nice lively bar area. Well done.
