Upstream Theater presents the U.S. Premiere of THE YEAR OF THE BICYCLE

Upstream Theater continues its 12th season with The Year of the Bicycle.

Joanna Evans’ award-winning play tells the story of Amelia and Andile who befriended each other over a garden when they were eight.

Many years later, now grown up but estranged, they fall into a concussion at the exact same moment and meet once again in each other’s mind.

A witty and poignant examination of childhood, memory and South Africa’s born-free generation.

Skipping from frolicky lightness to the dark borders of loneliness, this US premiere shows people reaching across walls that separate: race and class, innocence and guilt, playfulness and fear, yesterday and today.
