It’s about life, love, lust and Lotto.

Sex Drive is a fast-paced comedy, which tells the story of three women – close friends Chrissy, Sylvie and Dawn. They work together in a chicken factory in New Zealand, Pack ‘n Pullet Poultry.

The three women’s Lucky Plucky Cluck-Cluck Syndicate wins a second-division Lotto prize of over ten thousand dollars. At first they’re elated, until they realise it’s not enough for any of them to improve their lot in life. It’s only when they decide to pool their winnings to start a small business that they scent success and see a way out of Pack ‘n Pullet Poultry.

After a tiddly night at the pub celebrating their win, they brainstorm ideas. Sex sells. Especially when it comes on wheels. And so Sex Drive is born. A mobile sex shop created by women, for women. Sexy, not sleazy. Glamorous for the amorous. And most of all, fun.

The Sex Drive truck runs out of luck when it rolls up against Christian sensibilities on one side, and Gordy’s ambitions on the other. A rollicking truck ride, sex toys as kitchen utensils, a gambling debt, and a Christian conversion all make appearances.

Love is won – and lost – before all is revealed in a grand finale that celebrates sensuality in a storm of satin and Palpitating Papillion's.
