The Sweet Science of Bruising

by Joy Wilkinson

Fri 3 – Sat 11 May, 2024 Archive
A tale of passion, politics and pugilism - a feminist parable for our times.

Anna Lamb, Matty Blackwell, Polly Stokes and Violet Hunter, four women each fighting their own battles drawn into the world of Professor Charlie Sharp’s Islington boxing booth at the Angel Ampitheatre. Against the backdrop of Victorian London, we follow the journeys of four women from very different walks of life but with one thing in common – a desire to be the Lady Boxing Champion of the World!
