Ventoux is the most fearsome mountain encountered on the Tour de France.
It is also the story of Lance Armstrong and Marco Pantani – whose drug-fuelled race there in 2000 was the greatest cycling had ever seen. Ventoux charts the parallel lives of these champions who overcame great adversity in tandem, and the mountain that cast them in opposing directions.
Join 2Magpies Theatre Company in this unique show as they restage the race using breathtaking video accompaniment and a pair of road bikes, asking the question – how far will we go to succeed?
'...the immediacy of theatre and the subtle understanding shown...tell an old story anew. If you're a cycliing fan, you will learn much about two deeply flawed 'heroes; if you're not a cycling fan, you'll learn much about two deeply flawed human beings'
