Gypsy Queen featuring ALRA Grad Ryan Clayton

This new play by Rob Ward, directed by Adam Zane and featuring Rob Ward and ALRA Alumnus Ryan Clayton focuses on a love story between two fighters who discover the greatest challenge lies outside the ring.

gq poster v6The story of ‘Gorgeous’ George O’Connell: traveller, bare-knuckle fighter, hero to his people and Gypsy King. George leaves this life behind and enters the world of professional boxing, which puts him on a collision course with his roots, his identity and his greatest fear.

In the opposite corner, gay boxer Dane ‘The Pain’ Samson, the young pretender and son of a boxing legend. But Dane is fighting his own battles and they will ultimately lead to a tragedy that neither man could predict.

Two men who find themselves, and each other, in the most unlikely of worlds.
