Beryl rehearsals

'Beryl' rehearsals well underway at ERT

Rehearsals are well underway for the first ERT in-house production of the year, Beryl written by Maxine Peake.
 

When Beryl Charnock met keen cyclist Charlie Burton she was smitten, not only with Charlie but with the thrill and freedom she found on her bike. She would out-work the men in the rhubarb field, she could out-class the cyclists on the road and still time to knit young Denise a cycling jumper - though it wasn't meant to come down to her knees!

With husband and daughter at her side, the determined Beryl defied the world embarking on a journey that led to true sporting greatness. She dominated cycling throughout the 1950s, 60s and 70s, becoming five-time world champion and best British all-rounder for 25 consecutive years. And she still made it home in time for tea!

Come and see the show from the 25th April - 18th May.

Tickets £12-17.50 from www.eastridingtheatre.co.uk
