Humble shop assistant Mr. Hoopdriver has taken enough bike-riding
lessons to attempt to take his holiday on the road. Meanwhile, young
socialite Jessie Milton dreams of a life away from her stepmother and
accepts an offer from fortune-hunting cad Mr. Bechamel, who has his own
plans. When the two cross paths, Hoopdriver attempts to rescue Jessie,
win her heart, and be back at work after holiday, in this bicycling
adventure based upon a lesser-known comic novel by H. G. Wells. Much of
humor is derived from the fact that Mr. Hoopdriver, despite his name, is
not a very good bicyclist!
Accompanied live by a brand-new score composed by Dr. Philip Carli,
performed on piano, cello and woodwind by Philip Carli, Tammy Keller
& M. David Shemancik.
