In a world controlled by men, four Victorian women discover unexpected freedom in the underground subculture of women’s boxing - and struggle against the limitations of that freedom. Based on historical research into 19th century women’s boxing, Joy Wilkinson’s electrifying new play examines gender, class, violence, and the balance of power in a corseted world.

Left quad. Right quad. Lunge. From the safety of their suburban stretch circle, a high school girls’ soccer team navigates the chaos of self-discovery, confronting big questions and waging tiny battles with the ferocity of a pack of adolescent warriors. An incandescent portrait of nine nuanced, individual young American women forging their personal identities and moving into adulthood at warp speed.
