ANARCHY! BICYCLES! PUNK!
When their beloved bicycle is stolen, three young punks hammer through their city.
This fast-paced comedy of destruction is an ironic, pissed-off love letter to Minneapolis.
Written in collaboration with Sam Rodgers

"With references to 'zines, Nietzsche and vegans - plus a plethora of expletives -
playwright John Heimbuch's witty script is loaded with sly observations ... must see"
- Amy Carlson Gustafson, St. Paul Pioneer Press
"An unexpectedly intelligent and excellent adventure... What an ear playwright John Heimbuch has for the
high-octane rhetoric of the punk-anarchist subset! What's more, Heimbuch takes that heretical rhetoric, and
shapes it into unpredictable clashes of wills... A play that recalls the rawer and more jolting work of Sam Shepard."
- John Townsend, Lavender Magazine

Heimbuch's script is a great intellectual feat, tossing several balls immediately into the air and keeping them there for the play's duration, dispensing tidbits of information at a heady, entrancing pace that may have you on the edge of your seat. - Jay Gabler,
