Boxing play Proud to pack a punch
A show exploring the boxing world is being performed as the Olympics hit London.
Proud, which is being penned as an Olympic tale for an Olympic city, has been written by John Stanley.
Lewis, a teenage boxer, is attempting to achieve gold in his career and more importantly in his life.
Until the eve of his 18th birthday all is going well in his life - he is sexy and he knows it, he is a talented Olympic hopeful and he is in love.
But when his adoring mum throws the birthday party from hell everything starts to go downhill.
Lies, deception, homophobia and memories of a traumatic Soho evening in 1999 combine to make
Lewis face up to a difficult decision - what does he have to do to make himself proud?
Lewis knows the nation's expectations of him, but there is something he is hiding from them.
This three week run will be directed by Oliver Jack, who most recently directed the world premiere of Exposure and the first all male version of Scarborough.
A cast of six actors perform the comedy, which is set to thrill audiences during the Olympics.
