Tap a button. Get a ride.
In 2008, an entrepreneur leaves a tech conference in Paris. As he stands on the street, unable to hail a cab, an idea lands with the falling snow: tap a button, get a ride.
Ten years later, Mia drives nights in Manchester, Sean is recruited as the brightest new programmer and Tyler moves onto yet another new future.
This is the story of one brilliant idea. And the impact on the lives of many.
From award-winning writer Joseph Charlton (ANNA X, Industry), this fast, touching and scandal-driven show is based on the creation of a multi-billion-dollar app, which you might even use to get home afterwards…
