LEARNING TO DRIVE

Wednesday 2 May 2018 - 6:00pm to 7:30pm
Admission: 
£3

A literary agent whose husband left her and a Sikh driving instructor on the verge of an arranged marriage find that each has something to learn from the other about starting life anew

Wendy is a dynamic New York critic whose husband has just dumped her for a younger woman; Darwan is a soft-spoken taxi driver from India on the verge of an arranged marriage.

When Wendy hires Darwan to teach her to drive, her chaotic life and his calm restraint seem like an awkward fit. But as he shows her how to take control of the wheel, and she coaches him on how to impress a woman, their unlikely friendship awakens them to the joy, humour, and love in making a fresh start.

 

“This heartfelt exploration of middle-aged companionship is both meet-cute romcom and sensitive character study.”
