London 2012. Women’s boxing has been given the green light for the first time at the Olympics’ and just down the road Chloe Jackson is ready. She has spent the last ten years training with her Dad; coaching her, preparing her for this moment. Their big game strategy has been planned out meticulously. Then the phone rings. Three words and her world turned upside down. But Chloe is a boxer, a fighter and there’s one last game between her and the Olympic gold.
Charlotte Josephine wrote this play after a passer-by commented on how un-lady-like she looked as she lugged boxes on her day job. It is filled with power, adrenaline and danger. The play smashes stereotypes on the head, Chloe is all the things women “shouldn’t” be and the play is a reflection on how society struggles to deal with that. It is vital we see more women like Chloe on stage.
