Snuff Box Theatre is a collective of theatre makers who thrive on creating new work from a blank page. Founded in 2011, the company has a rich, diverse background in performance and creative play, which drives it in the creation of its work. Currently Associate Company at Redbridge Drama Centre, it collaborates with multi-skilled actors (actor-musicians, actor-writers, actor-directors and devising specialists) on each new idea, and there is always a strong sense of ensemble within Snuff Box. Whether large scale or intimate, political or fantastical, it has one singular aim: to tell great stories on stage.
Meet Chloe, 21, from Leytonstone. She likes the simple things in life: cherry sambuca, hairbrush-in-the-mirror karaoke and winding her Dad up.
Oh, and she’s a boxer.
London, 2012. Women will step into the Olympic boxing ring for the very first time. And it’s in Stratford. Down the road. As Chloe trains for the fight of her life, she is left winded by two life-changing events. In a man’s world, can she prove she’s still worth the title?
Fighting fit from critically acclaimed sell-out runs in London and Edinburgh, Bitch Boxer is an exhilarating new play by Charlotte Josephine.
