Squared Circle presents a new play about boxing for one week at the critically acclaimed VAULT Festival.
A boxer and his cornerman, a woman, prepare for the toughest fight of their careers. His is about to happen inside the ring. Hers has already started in the locker room, and could leave them both down for the count before the match even begins.

This new play by Josh Morrall starring Jospehine Timmins and Brian Tynan, explores the relationship between a worn out fighter and his trainer as they enter a new phase of their lives. It is the 1970s, a time when professional boxing was not yet fully controlled by hungry promoters. Set in a locker room, an hour before a fight, the journeyman boxer Mickey 'The Mantis' Weatherby (Tynan) prepares to go out to the ring for a fight he will probably lose. It is the job of his female cornerman (Timmins) to pump him up and get him ready to face a younger and stronger opponent.

Meanwhile, the cornerman must confront the issues with being a woman in a man's sport, whilst preparing for her own future in the business, which may not include the tired boxer. A love of the sport and a hate for the business has kept them together, but the game – whatever you want to call it – is changing.

Tickets: £12.50
