Irish Repertory Theatre's BIKEMAN Starring Robert Cuccioli, Richard Topol & More Now Available on Demand

Irish Repertory Theatre has announced the return of special audio event, Bikeman by Thomas F. Flynn, directed by Joseph Discher, produced by Robert Cuccioli, and featuring Robert Cuccioli, Stephen Eng, April Ortiz & Richard Topol. Bikeman will be available to listen to online on demand from September 8-18, 2022.

On September 11, 2001, journalist Tom Flynn set off on his bike toward the World Trade Towers not knowing what he was riding into. Bikeman is one man's journey back to the horrors of that day and to the humanity that somehow emerged from the dust and the death. Both heartbreaking and haunting, his words will stay with you like that "forever September morning" (Meredith Vieira, NBC's "Today").

Modeled on Dante's Inferno, veteran journalist Thomas F. Flynn's Bikeman chronicles the morning of September 11, 2001 like no other published work. Flynn delivers a personal account of his experiences beginning with the first strike on the World Trade Center when he decided to follow his journalist's instinct and point his bike's handlebars in the direction of the north tower. His story continues as he transitions from reporter to participant hoping to survive the fall of the south tower. Now Flynn, as both journalist and now survivor, must come to terms with the harrowing ordeal and somehow find peace in the very act of surviving.

Bikeman features Robert Cuccioli (A Touch of the Poet), Steven Eng (Hold These Truths), April Ortiz (In the Heights) & Richard Topol (Indecent).

Bikeman is directed by Joseph Discher and produced by Robert Cuccioli, with sound design by Karin Graybash. Butch Jones serves as Consulting Engineer with Daniel Sanint at Flux Studios as Recording Engineer. Visual Design is by Muireann Lalor.

Access to Bikeman is free, with donations encouraged to the Families of Freedom Scholarship Fund. Bikeman can be viewed directly at www.irishrep.org/bikeman.
