Millions of people cycle to work every day. And every week, some of them don’t make it home. One Tuesday morning, Isabelle packs her lunch box into her pannier, kisses her young daughter goodbye and sets off on her bike through Hackney. What happens along the way is at once shocking, inconceivable and terrifyingly ordinary.
Inspired by the story of Eilidh Cairns & set along an existing route ‘The White Bike’ is an affecting play about personal loss and a celebration of one woman’s life, tragically cut short. Directed by Lily McLeish (Associate Director on The Royal Court/Katie Mitchell’s Anatomy of a Suicide & Ophelias Zimmer) and written by Tamara von Werthern (Founder of Fizzy Sherbet – a new writing initiative for women writers) this world premiere creates an immersive experience of cycling in a physical, abstract and imaginative way.
