Following a critically acclaimed sell out season at the Adelaide Fringe Festival, Lies, Lies and Propaganda bring BICYCLE, written by Danielle Baynes, starring Danielle Baynes and Pip Dracakis, and directed by Michael Dean,  to the Old Fitz.

Upon meeting an enigmatic Transylvanian Count, a Victorian Englishwoman is given a bicycle. But this gift comes with a price: midnight supper at his place. This invitation proves too tempting to resist and her mortal life is changed forever. Bicycle is a one-woman play about conquering fears, parting legs and the unexpected turns life can take after dining with a monster.

The reviews interstate have been outstanding:-

★★★★ ‘Danielle Baynes is a supernatural force to be reckoned with in this fanciful, original dramatic comedy-thriller.’ – THE ADVERTISER
★★★★ ‘This show is utterly surprising: edgy theatre, bold and fierce, especially for feisty women.’ – INDAILY
★★★★ ‘An indisputably modern work jam-packed with ideas about female liberty…’ Great Scott
★★★★1/2 ‘Baynes is spellbindingly captivating in her storytelling…Adding to the beauty is the luscious voice and virtuoso violin playing of Pip Dracakis.’ – GLAM Adelaide
★★★★ ‘The audience is captured with every movement and every word…definitely one to put on the list.’ – Adelaide theatre guide

Lies, Lies and Propoganda’s production of Danielle Baynes’ BICYCLE is playing the Old Fitz from 21 June to 2 July.

All tickets $25 including booking fee.

Performance times Tuesdays to Saturdays at 9.30pm and Sundays at 7.30pm.
