Jason Butler Harner (COCK and TV’s Homeland) will join the previously announced screen star Greta Gerwig in the American premiere of Penelope Skinner's The Village Bike. Directed by Sam Gold, performances of the MCC Theater production will begin May 22 at the Lucille Lortel Theatre. Opening night is set for June 10.
Gerwig will appear as Becky and Harner as John. The cast will also feature Max Baker (Jerusalem) as Mike, Lucy Owen (Clybourne Park) as Alice, Cara Seymour (Stairway to Heaven) as Jenny and Scott Shepherd (Gatz) as Oliver.
The Village Bike tells the tale of Becky, a pregnant woman who can’t seem to get the attention of her husband while preoccupied with preparing for the baby’s months-away arrival. Becky takes the matters into her own hands and sets out on an adventure that starts with the purchase of a used bike from a man in town and takes her further than she ever expected she’d go.
