ED2012 Theatre Review: Bitch Boxer (Snuffbox Theatre)

ED2012 5/5 Reviews ED2012 Theatre Reviews

No need to be a sports fan to enjoy the tour de force that is ‘Bitch Boxer’; this funny and touching one-woman show is not only the story of a young girl’s struggle to prove herself, but at its core is a poignant and beautifully restrained tale about grief and loss. Writer/performer Charlotte Josephine has incredible talent, perfectly inhabiting every facet of this character, from the steely and determined athlete to the young dorky girl in love. That’s not to mention the sheer physicality she brings to the role; by the end there is steam literally rolling off her from under the hot stage lights. ‘Bitch Boxer’ is a wonderful and resounding triumph, totally unmissable.

Underbelly Cowgate, 2-26 Aug (not 14) 4.00pm
tw rating 5/5 | [Patricia-Ann Young]
