A Theatre Nation Partnerships production, produced by Queen's Theatre Hornchurch and written by Roy Williams. 

Two best mates, Leon and Troy, have spent their youth growing up in a boxing gym, figuring out a place in the world, vying for the approval of Charlie, their trainer.  Soon Leon and Becky (Charlie's daughter) are trying to keep a big secret. In a ruthless world. But there can only be one winner, and it's time everyone stepped into the ring to face up to who they really are... 

This tender, bruising and funny play by leading British dramatist Roy Williams brilliantly explores being young and black in the 80s. Winning the Alfred Fagon Award, The Writers Guild Award for Best Play and nominated for an Olivier for Best New Play, it first opened in a sell-out production at London's Royal Court. A regional premiere of thrillingly staged event theatre, from an exciting partnership of theatres, touring nationally.
