Millions of people cycle to work every day. And every week, some of them don't make it home.

One Tuesday morning, Isabelle packs her lunch box into her pannier, kisses her young daughter goodbye, and sets off on her bike through Hackney. What happens along the way is at once shocking, inconceivable, and terrifyingly ordinary.

Based on a true story, The White Bike is an affecting play about what happens when our world is turned upside down. It was premiered in 2017 at The Space, London, in a production directed by Lily McLeish.

Tamara von Werthern is the founder and producer of Fizzy Sherbet, a new-writing initiative for women writers from across the world. This edition also includes her short plays Baby Dolls and The Village Church.

An Education Pack for The White Bike is available free to download from this website, containing background information on the play, together with tips and advice on rehearsing and staging the play.

Extra Content: 'The white bike is also called a ghost bike and it is a monument, which is erected in the place where a cyclist died. My play was inspired by the story of Eilidh Cairns, whose white bike is the first permanent memorial of its kind...' Tamara von Werthern on the inspiration for her play, in an interview for The Space.
