The Catastrophic Theatre presents the return of one of its all-time favorite shows, Speeding Motorcycle, with words and music by Daniel Johnston.

The show takes audiences deep into the astounding, hilarious, and heartbreaking world of one of America’s most compelling cult musicians, Daniel Johnston. The original rock opera, based entirely on Johnston’s songs, was originally performed to rave reviews in 2006.

The play is about a man named Joe the Boxer, who loses his mind when his true love marries an undertaker, and it includes cameos from characters that feature prominently in Johnston’s mythology, including Jeremiah the Frog, Captain America, and Casper the Friendly Ghost.
