BERYL is Maxine Peake’s critically acclaimed first play. It’s a warm and witty celebration of the life of unsung sporting legend Beryl Burton. A working class mum from Leeds, she cycled her way into the record books, becoming the greatest ever woman on two wheels. But her remarkable story was, largely, forgotten – until now!
Charlie introduces Beryl to cycling and becomes her husband, manager and all round essential support.
The show opens at the New Vic Theatre, Newcastle, from 3rd – 18th March 2017.
Before transferring to the Stephen Joseph Theatre, Scarborough, from 21st – 25th March 2017.
