It’s 1895 and Annie Londonderry has returned victorious to America, hailed as the first woman ever to cycle around the world. She’s pioneering, she’s plucky, and she’s pitching her story to the men who run the newspapers.

 

From the infamous wager that set her journey in motion, to her freewheeling adventures with captains, cowboys, and customs officials, Annie just knows her tales will spin readers into a frenzy. 

 

But as she approaches rough terrain, and unexpected paths throw her off balance, can Annie regain her footing, or will she confront the past she left behind? 

 

This award-winning new musical charts one woman's radical act and explores the lies we tell to escape ourselves. RIDE gears up for its first full production for a limited run at London’s Charing Cross Theatre from August 2022.


After the performance on 6th September there will be a post show discussion 'Women In Sport, Then And Now,' with Helen Pankhurst leading the panel Carrie Dunn, Olivia Munk and Jack Williams.

Marie Curie
Marie Curie. Physicist. Pioneer. Parent.

Marie Curie is certain that she can make a name for herself and change the course of science in the progress as she arrives from her native Poland to study at Sorbonne University in Paris. When she discovers Radium, a new chemical element, she’s lauded with the Nobel Prize but is faced with an overwhelming moral dilemma. Whilst Marie is discovering the lifesaving potential of Radium to cure cancer, factory workers handing Radium are succumbing to the insidious grip of radium poisoning,

In a breathtaking display of courage and resilience, she shatters the glass ceilings of her time, defying the odds as a fearless female immigrant. A story of life and death, ‘Marie Curie’ has already captivated audiences in Korea with its sweeping score and story and is now brought to English-speaking audiences for the first time.
