“So, it’s like this: you’re eleven years old, you live in a small town and the times are dark, as they say. But you have a bike, a bike you love, a bike that makes you dream about a world bigger than the one you live in. One day, you take a ride through the outer edges of your town and something goes awry. Let’s call it an accident. Let’s say it causes you to see the world anew. Or maybe, it just causes you to see the world for what it truly is.” – Caridad Svich

RED BIKE Cast: A play for one performer. But may also be staged with three. The performer(s) may be any gender and age (from late teens and above). Casting, however, must be inclusive and reflective of the world. If the play is cast with three performers, then they may alternate stanzas, and speak at times in unison. An intergenerational cast is preferred. But actors need not be all of the same gender, ethnic or racial identity. The speaker in the text is a child of eleven years of age. But the performer(s) should not be eleven.
