Throwback Thursday - Scary Bikers

We've been taking this time to look back through the archives at some of our favourite shows, and this week we're sharing the Trafalgar Studios production of John Godber's Scary Bikers.

"A new comedy about life, love and staying on your bike!"

When retired miner Don and former private school teacher Carol meet by chance after both suffering a loss, they thought they’d found a new beginning. But a bike ride through Europe would test their budding romance, and the road to love is rocky when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object.

Join them on their hilarious and heartfelt journey, as they reconcile the past, debate the present and worry about the future. Whether they’re saddle sore in Southampton, blistered in Bordeaux or frazzled in Florence, one thing is for sure – it takes two to tandem!

Starring the double BAFTA and Olivier Award-winning partnership of John Godber and Jane Thornton, whose feature film Last Laugh was released October 2017."

★★★★ 'This is the best play I’ve seen, by far, on Brexit and why people voted Leave — give yourself a treat and go and see it’ The Times

★★★★ ‘Godber has a gift for evoking a whole world through a single line’ The Guardian

★★★★ ‘Godber’s refreshing comedy paints a picture of ordinary lives carrying on among the Brexit shambles’ The Stage

And speaking of carrying on among the shambles, we hope you are all surviving the Covid-19 lockdown - follow us on Twitter and check back on this website for regular updates, plays and photos to distract yourself with, and ways to seek advice as a theatre professional.
