The Scary Bikers – The Theatre Royal Wakefield

A new comedy about life, love and staying on your bike!

When retired miner Don and former private school teacher Carol meet at a bereavement group, they thought they’d found a new beginning. But a bike ride through Europe would test their budding romance, and the road to love is rocky when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object.

Join them on their hilarious and heartfelt journey, as they reconcile the past, debate the present and worry about the future. Whether they’re saddle sore in Southampton, blistered in Bordeaux or frazzled in Florence, one thing is for sure – it takes two to tandem!

Every night at 7.30pm and 3pm on a Saturday, tickets start at £15.  More info can be found on the Theatre Royal’s website here
