Octagon Theatre Bolton
By Maxine Peake
Directed by Kimberley Sykes

An extraordinary true story of determination, passion and pure grit. Beryl - the greatest woman on two wheels.

After falling ill during her 11+ exam, Beryl is told she won’t amount to anything so she sets out to prove everyone wrong!

Fast-forward several years, and a blossoming workplace romance with charismatic amateur cyclist Charlie Burton leads Beryl to find true love - not only with Charlie but with the thrill and freedom of being on two wheels.

Join us this autumn to discover how Beryl Burton - wife, mother, northern lass – became a record-breaking world champion and a cycling legend.

Written by award-winning actor, writer, and former Octagon Youth Theatre member Maxine Peake, the story of one the world’s greatest unsung sporting heroes will be energetically brought to life in the intimate setting of Bolton’s Library Theatre.
