BICYCLE THIEVES 2011


BICYCLE THIEVES
1st July - 17th July 2011 
 

 
 
 
A play inspired by Luigi Bartolini’s novel LADRI DI BICICLETTE
Script by Kieran Lynn
Conceived and directed by Henriette Baker
 
BICYCLE THIEVES is a unique outdoor show, combining theatre, BMX choreography and pedal-powered sound. 

Inspired by LADRI DI BICICLETTE, BICYCLE THIEVES updates the classic father and son story from post-war Rome to London today, and replaces bicycles with BMXes. A timeless drama with a contemporary edge.

Six performances at The View Tube, adjacent to the Olympic Park, and one night only at Folly for a Flyover.
 An involving, interactive outdoor experience, suitable for all ages. 

*Shortlisted for the Oxford Samuel Beckett Theatre Trust Award 2011 and IdeasTap Green Fund 2011*
