Production details

Drawing 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. This event takes place at Cavendish Gate, 295 Regent Street, London W1B 2HL. Tel: 07708 540 913
