Simon Jones in collaboration with Upstart presents

Marco (Preview)

In 1998, while Marco Pantani was winning the Tour de France, Simon was grazing his knee in a race with his brother on second-hand bikes. Six years later, Marco died. Disgraced in a doping scandal, he locked himself in a hotel room and killed himself with a massive overdose of cocaine.

Tonight, armed only with an inflated sense of his own ability and his junior cycling proficiency badge, Simon sets out to do justice to the epic story of his hero. Marco was an ordinary kid who became an icon. Yes, okay, he was also a cheat. But if you’d been programmed since childhood to win at all costs, wouldn’t you have done the same?

This preview performance of Marco, an explosively physical solo show about what it means - and what it takes - to succeed, is an exciting opportunity to see the production in its early stages.

Please note: This performance will be BSL interpreted Sign1.jpg
