“The Triumphs, Trials, and Tribulations of a remarkable woman named Annie Londonderry and her incredible adventures on the velocipede… Tad long? it’s a working title.”
It’s 1894 and as the bicycle is sweeping change across America, Annie Londonderry has a wager to settle: can a woman cycle across the world? 4 continents in 15 months: easy! Except she’s only been on a bicycle twice. From moneymaking masquerades as a Harvard professor to hunting tigers with German royalty, Annie spins the media into a frenzy with tales of her thrilling escapades. But with time running out and press coverage spiralling, she soon discovers that no matter how many miles she rides, the secrets of her past are never far behind.
Hold on to your handlebars and join Annie on the journey of a lifetime in this ‘sublime, pitch perfect’ (WhatsOnStage) new musical that will leave you breathless!
