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.
Nat’s life hasn’t turned out quite how she expected it to. She doesn’t do ‘packing light’ but she enjoys a bit of hot yoga. Becky seems to have it all. Designer clothes and a high powered job. They were best friends. They haven’t talked for over 10 years. Now they’re going to be stuck in a car together for 48 hours.
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.
“A dramatic, fourth-wall-breaking story of friendship and memory. Visually stunning and thought-provoking.” ****
