Simon Carroll-Jones and Upstart Theatre present


Simon is about to become a dad, and has no idea how to deal with it. So, he does what we all do in these situations, and looks to his childhood hero for answers. In Simon’s case, it’s the deceased cycling champion and drug cheat, Marco Pantani.

Trying to make sense of things before his life is changed forever, Simon sets off on a pilgrimage to visit the mountains of Marco’s most famous victories, the scenes of his most tragic moments, and the hotel room that he died in…

This darkly humorous and sweaty show tells the epic story of Marco Pantani, and Simon’s epic quest to find out what it means to be the best.

Please note: This show contains full frontal male nudity.
