CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 but restrictions were lifted on 19th July 2021 with venues free to run shows to full capacity audiences after that though there are still issues with company members being forced to self-isolate on being 'pinged'. In September it is possible that a COVID vaccination certificate (or exemption) may be mandated for entry. Please note that iUKTDb archive listings between March 2020 and July 2021 may not be accurate as we did not receive details of all rescheduled and cancelled shows.

Pedal Pusher archiveDrawing on interviews, archive footage and news reports, Pedal Pusher combines docu-drama and devised performance to tell the true story of the cyclists battling to become champion of the Tour de France. Through the mountains, the crashes, the sprints to the streets of Paris, Pedal Pusher captures the excitement, intrigue and danger of one of the most gruelling sporting events known to man. After all, to put yourself through all this for the sake of a bicycle race you'd have to be crazy. Or on drugs. Pedal Pusher follows three cyclists - Jan Ullrich, Marco Pantani and Lance Armstrong - through the five years that changed sporting history forever. From Jan Ullrich winning the Tour de France in 1998, through the near-collapse of the Tour de France in 1999, Armstrong’s battle with cancer and the allegations of drug abuse that have dogged cycling for so long. By interweaving the biographical stories with recreations of the Tour de France onstage, the play tells the difficult but up-lifting story of their lives through excitement and energy of the race itself.
Performers Josh Cass, Tom Daplyn, alex Guirney, Graham O'Mara.
