ED2012 Physical Review: Golden Gloves (Box Theatre)

By | Published on Saturday 11 August 2012

If you just read the description in the Fringe Programme and dismissed it as a simple ‘Fight Club’ style story, then you don’t know what you’re going to miss; the joys, sadness, beauty and absurdities of human life are so vividly celebrated. It made me laugh, it made me cry. The skilful acting and music-performance, from the heartbroken “best mama” to the melody improvised via boxing gloves and broom, are in no way reduced by the simple stage setting. What are we all searching for, fighting for, or running away from? From the same old fear: ourselves. I recommend this show very sincerely if you like something fun, moving, inspiring and thought-provoking. Plus, they have the most multi-talented cleaning lady, and the most robust stripteaser.

Bongo Club, 6-12 Aug, 7.00pm.
