“I think all this talk about girls not boxing is old fashioned, girls aren’t the delicate flowers they used to be.” Barbara Buttrick.

Everybody needs a hero, right?

 

Karen’s a young boxer desperate to use her skills to combat her struggles in balancing home life with her ambitions. Inspired by the story of iconic Hessle boxer and wrestler Barbara Buttrick, she’s got a voice on the male-dominated world of sports, and she wants you to hear it.

 

This mesmerising one-woman play tells the story of a world champion whose tenacity and skill took her to the top of her profession, and one who’s aiming to get there.
