THE Scary Bikers is John Godber's Brexit play, a two-hander where cyclists sharing a tandem ride across Europe discover they have polar opposite views.

Godber and his wife, the playwright and actress Jane Thorton, voted Remain but Godber plays a Brexiteer, retired miner Don, and Thornton, a Remainer, former private school teacher Carol. Will they fall out, fall off or stay on the bike? Find out at the Stephen Joseph Theatre, Scarborough, from tonight until Saturday.

After meeting at a bereavement group, Don and Carol test their budding romance on wheels, an unstoppable force meeting an immovable object as they reconcile the past, debate the present and worry about the future, having set out on the day Britain held its fateful referendum.

Produced by the John Godber Company and Theatre Royal Wakefield, and written and directed by Godber, thistopical new comedy addresses themes of seeking love after loss and the impact of the Brexit vote.

The Scary Bikers is among a series of commissions from Sky Arts in a £1m project to make 50 artworks exploring post-Brexit Britain.This week's SJT performances start at 7.30pm, tonight, tomorrow and Friday; 1.30pm and 7pm, Thursday, 2.30pm and 7.30pm, Saturday. Box office: 01723 370541 or at
