Shan has been fighting against the world all her life, but she doesn’t know why. Stepping into the boxing ring leads her on a journey that will forever change her destiny and the destinies of others.

FIGHT LIKE A GIRL is a bold new musical set against the backdrop of the remarkable rise of women’s boxing. Drawing upon real-life accounts from young female boxers the show fuses musical theatre with the dynamic physicality of boxing. This highly charged drama questions long-held gender and identity stereotypes. Find out what happens when you’re faced with fighting more than just your opponent.
