Design Statement

There's no physical contact in this play about boxing. The rhythms and violence of the action are conveyed by words, claps, stomps and attitude. The "fourth wall" is raised and lowered several times in the course of every conversation; the actors are not only characters but showmen. I think at least one part of each cue had a rate of zero, which was of course the part of the cue the audience noticed, so watching the play was like surrendering oneself to a thrill ride. A thrill ride about racism and its cost, about courage and loyalty, and progress and loss, and work that still needs to be done. Lyle Baskin's set suggested a converted industrial space of the early twentieth century. For some scenes, I used front of house gobos to suggest the shadows of more steelwork between the audience and the ring, as we would have seen it if we had actually been in that arena.
