Theatre Royal Backspace

It’s complicated. It’s not black-and-white.

Jeff Michel is pedalling back, back … back to a day in his boyhood when he was an awkward adolescent in Shaker Heights, Ohio.

Growing up is hard enough, but Jeff's love of cinema and the "Hollywood Ending" makes even the simplest things, like dating, kissing, and donuts, bigger than Ben Hur.  His friend Elle keeps him grounded and guessing until the real world suddenly, senselessly and tragically cuts short the friendship. 

Velvet-voiced, rubber-faced and multi-skilled, Jeff Michel offers an intimate feast of comedy and drama, hope and regret in his beautiful solo show, Pedalling Back.

Incorporating physical comedy, storytelling, puppetry and music, this is a show that delights in the raw possibility of theatre itself.

“… Simple yet rich, and with a smorgasbord of musical cinematic stings.”
