Edward's Talk - What's Driving You?

Devised by A G Anderson.

Directed by Julia Stubbs

Andrew Bruce-Lockhart as Edward

Theatre 1, theSPACE @ Surgeons Hall (Fringe Venue 53) Nicolson Street, Edinburgh, EH8 9DW

Edward (never Ted) has delivered his talk on speed awareness 2191 times over the last 10 years. Today, it’s not quite going to plan.

A new, interactive devised drama about the impact of speed on your driving, and how what happens in your life will have consequences when you get behind the wheel of a car. Inspired by real speed awareness courses, the piece uses the vehicle of a talk about the effects of speeding on our lives as a background against which Edward’s struggles play out. Featuring audience participation and involvement in observation tasks and speeding facts and figures, the talk may encourage you to, as Edward says, "drive like it matters".

Devised by A G Anderson who last worked with Blueberry Goose Theatre Group penning the ★★★★ show 1:2:2192 Retribution Day that premiered at Edinburgh 2022, EDWARD’S TALK - WHAT’S DRIVING YOU? features Andrew Bruce-Lockhart, a director and producer of film and theatre, in his first acting role.

Director Julia Stubbs previously worked with Blueberry Goose on the development of the new play Skybridge and in 2023 directed the premieres of What I Really Think Of My Husband by David Pinner (★★★★ Golden Goose Theatre) and Still Here by Mari Lloyd (★★★★ Jack Studio Theatre) and the national tour of Mark Glentworth’s SEVEN and a half YEARS (★★★★ and OffFest nomination).

Reviews for previous Blueberry Goose Theatre Group productions

★★★★ “They would often look out into the crowd and in the close (passionate) space it felt like peering into your soul, which was all this play was about” Mumbletheatre.net on 1:2:2192 Retribution Day

★★★★ “Talking about God is never easy, especially if you don’t want to fall into clichés, or judgments or hurt somebody’s conscience. God 2.0 is a courageous play that accomplishes all this” Londontheatrereviews.co.uk on God 2.0
