On Track

Written for RedCape Theatre, commissioned by South Street Arts for their year-round site specific Sitelines festival. This is a show for velodromes and theatres.

A story about a how cycling saves a woman's life. The audience follow single mother Kit’s journey of discovery through the history of women’s cycling. Riding at night, disguised as men, these cycling pioneers challenged Victorian ideals of the genteel, house-bound woman and opened up new worlds.

Performed at The Hexagon Theatre May 2021 - reimagined as a Velodrome for these exclusive shows - On Track explores the effects of Covid on our mental health and tells the story of how a simple bicycle becomes a vehicle to freedom.
