Samantha Power (Coronation Street and Holby City) teams up with Rebecca Ryan (Shameless and Emmerdale) in the production which visits Chesterfield this week.

Beryl was new to cycling when she married but went on to scoop world championships and be awarded an OBE. Her story is played out at the Pomegranate Theatre from November 12 to 14.
