<i>Isn't she gorgeous?

Hardly been ridden.

Becky's pregnant and frustrated.

But her husband is more interested in the baby manual than her new underwear, so she turns to the porn stash under the bed.

As the summer heats up, a brief encounter sends her speeding downhill towards reckless abandon.

A provocative and darkly comic look at fantasy and romance, <b>The Village Bike</b> by Penelope Skinner premiered at the Royal Court Theatre, London, in June 2011.

Penelope Skinner won the George Devine Award for Most Promising Playwright 2011.
