Amy Parker in Ride at The Vault Festival
Amy Parker plays the leading role of Annie Londonderry in Ride for Bottlecap Theatre at The Vault Festival, Waterloo.
One woman. One bicycle. One hell of a story.
It’s 1895 and 24 year old 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 New York World. But as she shares her adventures, the cracks begin to show, and she's forced to confront a past she'd rather leave unexplored.
