The play tells Beryl Burton's heartwarming and unforgettable story.
Regarded as the greatest woman to ever ride on two wheels, Beryl Burton is someone to be remembered. At age 11, she was diagnosed with a heart-weakening illness. Her doctors told her to avoid strenuous activity for as long as she shall live, but Beryl defied all warnings. At age 30, with no financial sponsorship and bearing the moniker, 'the Yorkshire housewife', she became the first sportswoman in history to beat a man's competitive sports record. Throughout her cycling career, Beryl won a total of seven world titles and over 90 domestic championship titles whilst also setting countless national sports records. Her women's record for the 12-hour time trial with a total of 277.25 miles went undefeated by any man for two whole years.
