About the Play

Red Bike imagines when you were eleven years old and you had a bike, one that made you dream about a world bigger than the one in which you live. This play is that memory. Except it is now. Two performers play the same character in a wildly imaginative, physical and poetic performance unlike anything else. Red Bike is about the divide between those who have and those who long for. It captures the heart of middle America while pushing two actors to their limits in a highly choreographed theatrical duet of storytelling.
