Becky is pregnant—and friskier than ever. But she can’t seem to get the attention of her husband, who is preoccupied with preparing for the baby’s months-away arrival. So Becky takes matters into her own hands and sets out on an adventure that starts with the purchase of a used bike from a man in town and takes her further than she ever expected she’d go.
A provocative and darkly comic look at fantasy and desire, The Village Bike by Penelope Skinner premiered at London’s Royal Court Theatre in 2011, where it enjoyed a sold-out, twice-extended run. MCC’s new production will feature Maggie Gyllenhaal (Crazy Heart, The Dark Knight) under the direction of Sam Gold (Circle Mirror Transformation, The Flick).
