The Vital Spark: The Driver’s Seat, BBC Radio 4 – Drama
January 14, 2018 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pmFree
One of Spark’s most gripping and disturbing books.
At the centre of this taut thriller is Lise, an enigmatic young woman travelling alone to a European city in search of “the one”.
She seems keen to leave a trail, acquiring a brightly coloured outfit and an equally outlandish set of personas in her encounters with a series of extraordinary and desperate individuals. But as the subject of her search eludes her, her behaviour becomes increasingly erratic. We assume that she is seeking a lover but in fact she is searching for the man who will murder her. As the tension builds, The Driver’s Seat asks if we are ever truly in control of our own lives.
Adapted by Beatrice Colin. Directed by Gaynor Macfarlane.
3-4pm on 14 January 2018, on BBC Radio 4 and online on the BBC Website and on i-player.
