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 funny, visceral show that packs a punch. 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.

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.


Supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England. Produced with support from Stratford Circus Arts Centre and Fight for Peace.
