“The Triumphs, Trials, and Tribulations of a remarkable woman named Annie Londonderry and her incredible adventures on the velocipede… Tad long? It’s a working title.”

It’s 1894 and as the bicycle is sweeping change across America, Annie Londonderry has a wager to settle: can a woman cycle across the world? 4 continents in 15 months: easy! Except she’s only been on a bicycle twice. From moneymaking masquerades as a Harvard professor to hunting tigers with German royalty, Annie spins the media into a frenzy with tales of her thrilling escapades. But with time running out and press coverage spiralling, she soon discovers that no matter how many miles she rides, the secrets of her past are never far behind.

Hold on to your handlebars and join Annie on the journey of a lifetime in this ‘sublime, pitch perfect’ (WhatsOnStage) new musical that will leave you breathless! Liv Andrusier returns to the saddle straight from her win at the OffWestEnd Awards for her “barnstorming performance” (The Stage) as Annie Londonderry in this five-star production that “ticks literally all of the boxes” (Musical Theatre Musings).

★★★★★ “One of the best musicals this year.” The Spy in the Stalls

★★★★★ “Unmissable.” Everything Theatre

★★★★★ “A must-watch for everyone.” Theatre Weekly

★★★★★ “It’s a must-see.” London Theatre Reviews

★★★★ “Get on your bike and go!” The Daily Express

★★★★ “Bracingly original, exquisitely crafted and delightful.” WhatsOnStage
