Event information:

Karen, 17, on her parents: loving and lovable; secret devotees of University Challenge.  Oh, and they’re cops.

Karen’s parents, on Karen: fearless cycling champion; a sweet-natured young lady.

Karen’s parents are worried. She won’t come out of her bedroom. Which is odd, given she’s such a go-getter. Odder still is what she’s doing in there…

A poignant rites-of-passage story from acclaimed writer Jon Welch.

Reviews from performances of ‘Bike’ at the Edinburgh Fringe:

“Beautifully realised by a terrific cast, it’s a piece of perfection from writer, Jon Welch.”

“A stunning piece. Draws the audience in with a light but sure touch, then turns on a sixpence to move through the darkest of territory before an astonishing and beautiful coup de theatre.”

Bodkin Theatre unpick stories – old and new – and thread our own narratives through the tales we tell.

Our most recent production was E.M.Forster’s A Room with a View at the Minack theatre, which was described in the review as: “brilliantly witty, irreverent, slightly naughty, cleverly mischievous and immensely enjoyable.”
