“I thought about giving up. But then I remembered who was watching.”
Single mum Lee is a fighter. She’s used to fighting the world, alone. No one’s in her corner, she’s down but not out – yet. Then she steps into Tommy’s Gym and everything changes: plunged into the world of boxing, Lee’s fight really begins.
Inspired by the pioneering British female boxers that fought for their right to fight, Fighter is a raucously visceral show that packs a punch.
Fresh off the back of her acclaimed show Muvvahood, writer and performer Libby Liburd and director Julie Addy present their newest piece of powerhouse theatre, using their trademark mix of hard hitting facts, humour and lived experience.
Featuring a cast of genuine young boxers from Fight for Peace creating a loud, sweaty, immersive fusion of boxing and theatre that will leave you on the edge of your ringside seat.
