Gypsy Queen at Oldham Coliseum
Working Progress Theatre company come to the Oldham Coliseum Theatre studio on Thursday 20 and Friday 21 April with Rob Ward’s Gypsy Queen.
Gypsy Queen is an exploration of homosexuality in the boxing arena. It follows the story of ‘Gorgeous’ George O’Connell, an undefeated bare-knuckle fighter from a traveller family who leaves his roots behind when he is taken on by a professional boxing coach. George falls for his coach’s openly gay son, Dane ‘The Pain’ Samson, and begins to learn more about who he is and what he wants.
Faced with the challenges of being an openly gay male in both the sporting world and the traveller community, can these men who were raised to fight learn to love? And can they win the fight outside the ring?
Gypsy Queen is the new play by Rob Ward, co-writer of one-man show, Away From Home, which toured nationally and internationally between 2013 and 2016, picking up critical acclaim and several awards including Manchester Theatre Awards for Best New Play and Best Fringe Performance.
Gypsy Queen is suitable for ages 16+. The performance contains nudity, strong language and scenes of a sexual nature.
