    Set in 1962, Midland Ireland, we enter the dangerous, topsy-turvy world of Irish boxing and meet a host of colorful characters who spar and jab until they are knocked out by two unexpected visitors (one seen, one unseen), both of whom will throw the already precarious equilibrium totally off balance, and may threaten the makeshift family completely.


    In the play, we meet Theo, the dangerous and charismatic Ringleader; Lily, his scrappy, defiant lover; Peadar, a world-weary boxing coach who fathers the group; Dean, a cocky prizefighter hell bent on proving himself; Junior, the injured Adonis, who may still have to enter the ring; and Emer, Theo's long lost daughter who is up to no good.


    When a pro boxer comes along, a man never seen but powerful nonetheless, Theo can't give up the chance to possibly make some money, even if it puts the entire troupe at risk.

    This theatre is accessible to those with disabilities.
    $15 - $25
