I’ve been doing this for over twenty years and I’ve never had a student not pass first time. Tyler, do you trust me?’

Max is a retired cabbie who now prides himself on being the best driving instructor in Birmingham. Tyler is desperate to escape his suffocating hometown and start a new life in the big city.

As Tyler gets to grips with clutch control and the highway code, he and Max find themselves navigating the challenges of manhood and personal regrets. Within the confines of a Vauxhall Corsa, the pair strike up an unlikely friendship they both needed more than they ever knew.

This heart-warming story of acceptance is a new Bush Theatre commission written by Will Jackson (Yours Sincerely, Soho Theatre & UK Tour).

Work Experience Diary | Lily: “The ethos of the company is constant re-invention”

A theatre, more than any other work space, is one where creatives in every field come together to achieve the social vision of political change. What I have always loved about the Bush is their focus on youth participation, and the way in which their plays breathe fresh air into the canon of British theatre.…
