Event Description:
New York director Kara-Lynn Vaeni jumpstarts the SBU Theatre Arts season with an outrageously bold interpretation of Bike America, a recently written play by Mike Lew. We follow antiheroine Penny on her spontaneous bike tour (for cancer) across the United States along with a band of millennials (those born between the early 1980s and early 2000s) in search of a place to call home, civil liberty, love, or at least a life-altering epiphany.

Zachary Stewart of Theatre Mania calls Lew's script "a darkly humorous take on the cross-country-self-discovery journey…Lew has a keen sense of this form yet a palpable mistrust of its inherent clichés, [which] makes for a refreshing and intelligent exploration of millennial malaise and its itchy place within the American generational drama."

Bike America proves to be a poignant and relevant experience for any university student. Vaeni makes use of the crisp, fresh text by forming a final piece that is paced like a modern television series, with life-sized doses of deliciously ruthless comedy, wonderfully awkward missteps, and courageously modern viewpoints.
