THE DRIVE 2017
Angel Exit's new two hander show is currently in development. It has been supported by grants from Arts Council England, Borough of Poole Culture Fund, Activate Performing Arts, Marine Theatre R&D by the Sea, West Dorset Leisure Fund and Lighthouse Poole's Centre for the Arts where the show will be created in June/ July.
An original story developed by Lynne Forbes and Tamsin Fessey with 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 show about truth, friendship, the fragility of memory and coming of age in the 1990s. We're excited to be working with Elliot Manches on projection design, Tom Ball on a thrilling original soundtrack, Yoon Bae on set and costume design, Zoe Spurr on lighting design and of course Matt Lewellyn Smith our stage manager who gets involved with everything.
