A comedy/drama by top UK writer John Godber
Following their five star reviewed, sellout success with Talking Heads tour last June, QE2 productions is back with The Scary Bikers. A comedy/drama about life, love and staying on your bike by John Godber, one of the UK’s most performed playwrights. QE2’s touring production opens in the Netherlands just as it is also transferring into London’s West End.
When retired miner Don (Mark Winstanley) and former teacher Carol (Loveday Smith) meet it looks like a new beginning. But a bike ride through Europe tests their budding romance. It’s second time around for recently bereaved Carol and Don. But the road to love proves rocky when they find they are on opposite sides of the fence over Brexit!
QE2 is an offshoot of QETC, whose recent all-male The Importance of Being Earnest was a huge sellout and critically acclaimed show.
By kind permission of Alan Brody Representation. The play was originally funded by Art50, a scheme commissioned by Sky Arts to explore the notion of British Identity.
QE2 is the professional, touring arm of QETC. It brings together the talents of West End actress Loveday Smith and QETC’s artistic director, Mark Winstanley. Their goal is to bring thought-provoking English-language theatre to audiences in Amsterdam and beyond.
