Penelope Skinner’s The Village Bike has extended its off-Broadway run through July 13. The MCC production, directed by Sam Gold and starring Greta Gerwig and Jason Butler Harner, had been set to end on June 28 at the Lucille Lortel Theatre. The production celebrated its opening night on June 10.
The Village Bike follows Becky (Gerwig), 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.
In addition to Gerwig and Harner, the cast of The Village Bike includes Max Baker, Lucy Owen, Cara Seymour and Scott Shepherd.
