Acclaimed new musical Ride is heading back to London this summer 2023.
The show will play the Southwark Playhouse Elephant from 19 July to 12 August 2023.
Ride had a successful run last year at the Charing Cross Theatre, getting great reviews from the critics and scoring a Best Off West End Production nomination at the 2023 What’s On Stage Awards, plus 5 Offie Award nominations, and 4 Broadway World UK award nominations.
Liv Andrusier returns to the part of Annie Londonderry following her OffWestEnd Award winning performance at Charing Cross Theatre, joined by Katy Ellis as Martha Smith and Fallon Mondlane as the alternate for both roles.
The show is set in 1894, and as the bicycle is sweeping change across America Annie Londonderry has a wager to settle: can a woman cycle across the world? 4 continents in 15 months: easy! Except she’s only been on a bicycle twice. From moneymaking masquerades as a Harvard professor to hunting tigers with German royalty, Annie spins the media into a frenzy with tales of her thrilling escapades. But with time running out and press coverage spiralling, she soon discovers that no matter how many miles she rides, the secrets of her past are never far behind.
The show boasts a book, music and lyrics by Freya Catrin Smith and Jack Williams, and is directed by Sarah Meadows.
The creative team also includes Set & Costume Design by Amy Jane Cook, Lighting Design by Jamie Platt, Sound Design by Andrew Johnson, Orchestrations by Macy Schmidt, Musical Direction and Supervision by Sam Young, Movement Direction and Choreography by Natasha Harrison, Illusion Design by John Bulleid and the Associate Director is Olivia Munk.
