'Shut Up and Drive' is a clever satirical play about the significance of the automobile in Australian lives. What makes 'Shut Up and Drive' so captivating is it's ability to have you slapping your thighs laughing one moment and gasping with teary eyes the next. Just like the joy and sadness that comes with owning a car.
The play draws the audience into multiple situations (including waiting for the NRMA, playing car racing video games and politicians deciding road and transport policies) each lasting a few minutes. Random and mundane as these situations seem, they are all related in the greater story of how the automobile fits in. The regular scene changes provide enough fodder for short attention spans which could be a subtle dig at modern society.
