One of the most interesting and thought provoking plays about cycling ever staged has begun in the West End of London – and we’d like to give YOU the opportunity of reviewing it for road.cc
Pedal Pusher, by Roland Smith, is the story of three cyclists – Lance Armstrong, Jan Ullrich and Marco Pantani – and the epic trials and tribulations the trio were involved in during the Tour de France events of the late 1990s.
It’s all here – cancer battles, comebacks, doping allegations and much more, and the theatredelicatessen company staging it have put imagination and insight into the production which, amazingly, doesn’t feature any actual cycling.
However, the audience becomes the spectators as drama worthy of Shakespeare himself is played out on stage, and, by arrangement with theatredelicatessen, we’d like to offer a road.cc’er the chance to go and review it, and take a friend along for free too.
We've got two spots at the play’s Press Night tomorrow, Tuesday July 14. Doors open at 7pm, the show will start at 7:30pm, and running time is just over two hours with an interval.
The venue, Cavendish Gate, 295 Regent Street, is on the left hand side of Regent Street walking north away from Oxford Circus, next to Book Warehouse and a couple of doors up from All Bar One.
We’d like your entries as soon as possible - just comment them below. You'll need to be available to go to the play (natch) and we'd like a review of no more than 250 words. Once it’s up, we’ll have another interesting offer to run alongside the play, which runs until August 1st. We'll pick a winner tomorrow (Tuesday 14th July) at 3pm.
