In a world controlled by men, four Victorian women discover unexpected freedom in the underground subculture of women’s boxing - and struggle against the limitations of that freedom. Based on historical research into 19th century women’s boxing, Joy Wilkinson’s electrifying new play examines gender, class, violence, and the balance of power in a corseted world.
