Angel Exit Theatre in association with Lighthouse, Poole’s Centre for the Arts, present The Drive
“A touching physical whirlwind full of quirky humour and high energy” (Reviews Hub)
Two women. A fractured friendship. A car full of boxes and a message from a dead friend.
The Drive recounts an unexpected Nordic road trip which sees two estranged friends thrown together on a tense journey from London to Oslo. The further Becky and Nat get from home the closer they come to confronting the demons of their shared past.
Spliced through with humour, slick physicality, an original contemporary soundtrack and video projection, The Drive is a show about friendship, grief, the fragility of memory, turning 40 and coming of age in the 1990s.
The critically acclaimed Angel Exit Theatre bring their trademark inventiveness to this brand new show written by the company with Nell Leyshon following a successful run at the Edinburgh fringe festival.
