Meet Chloe, 21, from Leytonstone. She likes the simple things in life: cherry sambuca, hairbrush-in-the-mirror karaoke and winding her Dad up.

Oh, and she’s a boxer.

London, 2012. Women will step into the Olympic boxing ring for the very first time. And it’s in Stratford. Down the road. As Chloe trains for the fight of her life, she is left winded by two life-changing events. In a man’s world, can she prove she’s still worth the title?

Fighting fit from critically acclaimed sell-out runs in London and Edinburgh, Bitch Boxer is an exhilarating and award-winning new play by Charlotte Josephine, brought to you by one of the UK’s fastest rising companies – Snuff Box Theatre.

Bitch Boxer was originally cultivated at Soho Theatre Writer’s Lab and was first presented as part of the Old Vic New Voices Edinburgh Season 2012, in partnership with the Underbelly, supported by IdeasTap.
