“To men, the bicycle in the beginning was merely a new toy…To women, it was a steed upon which they rode into a new world.” – Munsey’s Magazine, 1896
Upon meeting an enigmatic Transylvanian Count, a Victorian Englishwoman is given a bicycle. But this gift comes with a price: midnight supper at his place. This invitation proves too tempting to resist and her mortal life is changed forever. Bicycle is a one-woman play about conquering fears, parting legs and the unexpected turns life can take after dining with a monster.
