THE VILLAGE BIKE

 

Becky has just moved into the countryside with her husband John. She’s frustrated. She’s pregnant, horny as hell and she’d love a glass of wine – or three. But her husband’s been reading The New Pregnancy Ideal and isn’t having any of it, so she takes matters into her own hands.

The Village Bike is a daring and hilarious play about moving to the countryside, making babies and sorting out a plumber.

“Special note as well to the set designer for the marvellous traverse stage. Being bound on both sides by the audience really adds to how confined the main character feels and is yet another sign of the real quality of this production.” UK Theatre Network

“It’s a delightfully creative set by Fabrice Serafino, with fully functioning kitchen, bedroom with apparent ensuite, overactive plumbing, a video wall, and even an inventive way of representing the open road pouring with rain. That’s pretty good going for a space that small.” The Real Chrisparkle
