NTS ‘The Driver’s Seat’ at the Royal Lyceum, Edinburgh and Tramway, Glasgow

Gabriel Quigley will be appearing in the National Theatre of Scotland’s production of ‘The Driver’s Seat’ from 13th-27th June at the Royal Lyceum Theatre, Edinburgh and from 2nd-4th July at the Tramway, Glasgow.

Gabriel QuigleyAdapted for the stage for the first time, The Driver’s Seat is one of renowned novelist Muriel Spark’s most gripping and disturbing books.

At the centre of this taut, darkly comic thriller is Lise, an enigmatic young woman travelling alone to an unnamed European city, and searching for “the one”. She seems keen to leave a trail, acquiring a brightly coloured outfit and an equally outlandish set of personas in her encounters with a series of extraordinary, bizarre and desperate individuals. But as the subject of her search eludes her, her behaviour becomes increasingly erratic. All the while, in a police incident room, the hunt is on for a killer. 

As the tension builds and the twin narratives intertwine, The Driver’s Seat asks if we are ever truly in control of our own lives.
