THE Scary Bikers, a new comedy starring BAFTA award-winning duo, John Godber and Jane Thornton, peddles into Poole next week.

Produced by The John Godber Company and Theatre Royal Wakefield, and written and directed by Godber, The Scary Bikers is a brand new comedy about love, life and staying on your bike.

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

With themes of finding love after loss and the ongoing impact of the Brexit vote, Don and Carol travel across Europe 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.

The Scary Bikers arrives at Lighthouse from Friday, March 23 to Saturday, March 24. There is a post-show talk on Friday. Tickets: £20. To book, see
