Fight Like A Girl - British Youth Music Theatre

Current shows

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, and fusing together musical theatre with the dynamic physicality of boxing, this highly charged drama questions long-held gender stereotypes and identity in the 21st century.

Shan’s been fighting against the world around her all her life, when a chance meeting with an old friend leads her to the boxing gym, her life will never be the same again.

Find out what happens when you‘re faced with fighting more than just your opponent.

*This show is presented in promenade, the audience will be moving and standing throughout, contains adult themes.

In 2012 Nicola Adams, made sporting and social history at the London Olympics when she became the first woman to win a Gold Medal for boxing. Since then boxing classes for women have sprung up all around the UK and boxing has become one of the fastest growing female sports.
