Jeff Michel is pedalling back, back … back to a day in his boyhood when he was an awkward adolescent in Shaker Heights, Ohio (“Round at each end and ‘hi’ in the middle – just like a bicycle!”)
A sudden and traumatic event shattered this idyllic youth, and Jeff retreated into cinematic dreams: stereotypical Hollywood fantasies and happy endings. The way young Jeff wished his own life could be.
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.
