Sydney Premiere of THE VILLAGE BIKE Comes to Old Fitz Theatre

Sydney Premiere of THE VILLAGE BIKE Comes to Old Fitz TheatreCross Pollinate Productions in association with Red Line Productions is thrilled to present the Sydney premiere of Penelope Skinner's The Village Bike for a limited season at the Old Fitz Theatre from June 7.

Becky is pregnant and frustrated. Her husband is more interested in the baby manual than her new underwear so she turns to the porn stash under the bed. As the summer heats up, a brief encounter sends her speeding downhill towards reckless abandon.

From the brilliant mind of playwright Penelope Skinner - described as Britain's "leading young feminist writer" (The Independent) - The Village Bike premiered at London's Royal Court in 2011, where it had a sell-out, twice-extended run. It was the winner of the 2011 George Devine Award and won Skinner the Evening Standard Award for Most Promising Playwright.

Provocative, hilarious and absolutely crucial, Rachel Chant (Leaves, When the Rain Stops Falling) directs a brilliant cast including Gabrielle Scawthorn (Ride and Fourplay, Hurt), Benedict Wall (Home and Away, You Will Not Play Wagner), Sophie Gregg (Deathtrap, Peter Allen: Not the Boy Next Door), Rupert Reid (Blue Heelers, Julius Caesar), Kate Bookallil (Closer, The Letdown) and Jamie Oxenbould (The Literati, Dapto Chaser) in the Sydney premiere of The Village Bike, a darkly comic twist on presumptions about sexuality and pornography.
