THE DRIVER’S SEAT – Lyceum Theatre, Edinburgh

In London theatre, Plays, Regional theatre, Reviews, Scotland by Thom DibdinLeave a Comment

The National Theatre of Scotland’s adaptation of Muriel Spark’s The Driver’s Seat has a righteous fury, combined with a drive born out of cleverly harnessed technology and a tight ensemble. However, it does not always seem sure of itself and as a result is a curiosity rather than a convincing piece of theatre.

It is not much of a spoiler to say she will end up murdered, as we are told this very early on. Instead the focus is on how and why this will happen.
