The Drum


A powerful story about hope, desire and the dangers of obsession.

And so it begins.
We climb on, we clip in, we cycle, climb a hill, breathe deep, near the top, change up, push on…

Jodie cycles to college every day. She has a crush on her hero.
She lives with her Dad. She misses her Mum.

Change up, push hard, legs burn…

Plumber Tony only bought his bike to impress his daughter, now he’s hooked. He misses his wife.

Teeth hurt, fingernails hurt, everything hurts…

A charismatic pro-cyclist, Noah’s just the man to lead his tarnished sport into a bright new era.

But we push on and we push on. In search of that snowblind peace, that magical frequency. In search of The Man With The Hammer.

From the writer of The Christmas Truce (RSC 2014), Blink (Soho Theatre/Broadway) and The Cracks In My Skin (Manchester Royal Exchange).
