He’s also written for film and television and is the co-author of The Bicycle Men, a very funny musical which has played in London, Edinburgh, and around the US. Joe talks about the musical’s origins and ruminates on the power of redemption, the value of la bicyclette as une métaphore, Franco-American influences, atypical Scottish response, musical theatre dreams, comic stereotypes, cynical lullabies, and the universal love of all things French.
