The extraordinary story of the first woman to cycle around the world. 


Multi-award-winning new musical RIDE launches at Leicester Curve in a “sublime, pitch-perfect production” (WhatsOnStage) with a “stunning original score” (EverythingTheatre) following its critically acclaimed, sell out run in London last year. 


It’s 1894 and as the bicycle is sweeping change across America, Annie Londonderry finds herself with a wager to settle: can a woman cycle across the world? With only 15 months to make the trek across four continents, she quickly finds herself involved in more than she bargained for. 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 far she rides, the secrets of her past will always catch up with her.


Join Annie on the journey of a lifetime in the smash hit musical about adventure, determination, and rewriting your narrative. Liv Andrusier, Off West End Award winner for her “barnstorming performance” (The Stage) as Annie Londonderry, returns to the saddle in this five-star production that “ticks literally all of the boxes” (Musical Theatre Musings).
