The first Rush took place in October 2019 to mark Black History Month at National Youth Theatre's north London home and was a cabaret style scratch night curated by NYT Member Shakira Newton and directed by Lakesha Arie-Angelo, with pieces performed, written or created by black NYT Members. Shakira was inspired to stage Rush as a response to the lack of people of colour at the 2019 Edinburgh Fringe Festival, where she starred in NYT's production of F*Off.
