White Feather Boxer

The story of a boxer who was also a conscientious objector.

It’s April 1967: in a shabby East End boxing gym, elderly trainer, Jimmy listens to the news: the world’s heavyweight champion, Muhammad Ali refuses to fight in Vietnam.

It’s a story Jimmy knows all too well. Back during WW1, he used to be a contender but with Conscription, Conscientious Objectors went to prison or the firing squad. The Quaker - Boxer made his choice but he still can’t face those demons from the past and now there’s Jo, an angry demon from the present! Women boxing!? Training her in the noble art will take all his strength (never mind his patience).

“This tiny company punches way above its weight – see them and experience meticulously researched theatre that stimulates, entertains and relies on skill and imagination” - The Public Review
