Our 38th Meetup event took us back to Shotgun Players for Penelope Skinner’s The Village Bike by (WWSF attended Marisela Treviño Orta’s Heart Shaped Nebula in 2015)
Synopsis: Becky’s got sweaty pipes. Banging and groaning in the middle of the night, something’s got to be done. While her husband spends all his time poring over baby books, Becky takes charge and “brings in a man” to get the job done. Things get complicated. The Village Bike looks dead-on at the world’s view of women’s sexuality with a hilarious, steamy and provocative plunge into intimacy, pornography and the anxiety of expectant parents.
“A genuinely daring new play… about sex, the all-encompassing kind that makes people forget who and where they are.” —New York Times
“An uncommon and revitalizing entry in mainstream theater.” —New York Times
