A new solo play with Helen Moulder directed by Sue Rider. A family, food and five
surprising characters!
Olivia Paterson runs a big meat exporting company and wants to feed the world. Her
daughter is a vegan. Her father wants things to stay as they are. And her sister is not sure
what she wants. Only the mysterious Grace seems certain.
The Bicycle and the Butcher’s Daughter is a lively and entertaining solo work which
addresses themes of women in leadership, the meat industry, veganism, global food issues
and family relationships.

It is written by Sue Rider and Helen Moulder and directed by Sue Rider, the collaboration
that brought you Playing Miss Havisham, Gloria’s Handbag and Meeting Karpovsky.
Production includes recorded music by pianist Richard Mapp and violinist Juliet Ayre.
Contains some strong language. Recommended 15 +

Arts On Tour NZ (AOTNZ) organises tours of outstanding New Zealand performers to rural
and smaller centres in New Zealand. The trust receives funding from Creative New Zealand
as well as support from Central Lakes Trust, Community Trust of Southland, Interislander,
Otago Community Trust, Rata Foundation and the Southern Trust. AOTNZ liaises with local
arts councils, repertory theatres and community groups to bring the best of musical and
theatrical talent to country districts. The AOTNZ programme is environmentally sustainable
– artists travel to their audiences rather than the reverse.
