One woman. One bicycle. One hell of a story.
It’s 1895 and Annie Londonderry has returned victorious to America, hailed as the first woman to ever cycle around the world.
She’s pioneering, she’s plucky, and she’s pitching her story to the New York World. But she can’t do it alone. Joined at the eleventh hour by unwitting secretary Martha Smith, the two begin to share Annie’s unbelievable adventures. But before long, the cracks begin to show, and Annie is forced to confront a past she’d rather leave unexplored.
The incredible true story of a young woman with big plans, and an even bigger imagination bursts into life in a semi-staged reading of this new, award-winning musical by Freya Catrin Smith and Jack Williams, starring Gemma Sutton (Girl from the North Country, Follies, The Rink) as Annie Londonderry, and Bronté Barbé (Oklahoma, Beautiful, Over The Rainbow) as Martha Smith. Directed by Adam Lenson and Freya Catrin Smith.
