Angel Exit Theatre Co. presents
An original story developed by Lynne Forbes and Tamsin Fessey with dramaturgical support from playwrights Nell Leyshon and Amy Rosenthal, The Drive sees two women on an unexpected road trip from London to Oslo. The further they get from home, the closer they get to confronting the demons of their shared past. It’s a show about truth, friendship, the fragility of memory and coming of age in the 1990s. And who owns the truth when there is no proof?
Angel Exit’s new two hander show has been supported by grants from Arts Council England, Borough of Poole Culture Fund, Activate Performing Arts, Marine Theatre’s R&D by the Sea, West Dorset Leisure Fund and Lighthouse Poole’s Centre for the Arts, where the show was created. Angel Exit is excited to be working with international designer Yoon Bae, Elliot Manches on projection design, Tom Ball on a thrilling original soundtrack, Zoe Spurr on lighting design and of course Matt Llewellyn Smith, the stage manager who gets involved with everything. The show has been created with Hannah Boyde and Caroline Garland as devisor collaborators.
A touching physical whirlwind full of quirky humour and high energy
