PHILLY GHOST BIKE THEATRE PROJECT
2022 - 2024

The Philly Ghost Bike Theatre Project  is an immersive performance  that puts the audience on bicycles, following a food delivery worker on the day they are killed by vehicular violence, and continues into the afterlife with them. The piece is a love song to the bicycle that addresses issues of bicycle safety and transportation justice, as well as being a meditation on life and loss.
 

 The play will be staged on a 3 mile ride along a protected bike lane on MLK Drive in Philadelphia. Audiences will pedal alongside the protagonist as the narrative unfolds on bike and at stops along the path.

*WHAT'S A STAGED READING???

A staged reading is a reading of a script, sometimes a work-in-progress, that isn't fully produced.  The actors read from a script, and there are no costumes, sets or lights yet.  

 

A staged reading is an immensely helpful part of a play's development process.  It helps the playwright, director and performers gauging what is, and isn't, working in the script and is an opportunity to solicit feedback from audience members for future productions.
