Dates, Times and Prices


Rowan is a geospatial engineer earning good money, and Nic is a freelance illustrator who is... not. They meet on a commission for TFL and hit it off. Mostly. But when Rowan takes a job in autonomous vehicle design, Nic's lefty principles and outspoken technophobia must take a back seat, and the tensions in their relationship begin to pick up speed. Gripping new play about class, power and self-driving cars from Olivier-nominated writer Ben Norris, Autopilot is a deeply modern love story that asks – in the event of a head-on collision – who are we programmed to save?
