Launching in London’s West End this week is a new play that takes place entirely within a car – with the cast sitting in the front seats and the audience in the back.
The unique play has been created by Olivier Award-winning playwright and screenwriter Bola Agbaje, famed for her critically-acclaimed first play ‘Gone Too Far’.
Entitled ‘Papa Don’t Preach’, the short 20-minute performance takes place entirely in a family car parked up on London’s iconic Drury Lane.
The play – which centres on the relationship between a father and daughter as they discuss her flying the nest and growing independence – will run over four days from Wednesday 22nd August to Saturday 25th August. People wishing to apply for tickets can do so by emailing auto[email protected] with the date and time they would like to attend.
The play, and unique theatre space, was commissioned by MORE TH>N to celebrate the important family conversations that take place in the car each day, with 51% of parents seeing everyday conversations in the car as beneficial to their family’s mental health and wellbeing according to new research.
