The Sweet Science of Bruising

February 21 - March 01 Ticket Info

In a world controlled by men, four Victorian women discover unexpected freedom in the underground subculture of women's boxing—and struggle against the limitations of that freedom.

19/20 Theater Department

Based on historical research into 19th century women's boxing, Joy Wilkinson's electrifying new play examines gender, class, violence and the balance of power in a corseted world.

The Sweet Science of Bruising is a production of the Dartmouth Department of Theater and is part of a mission to provide students with a distinguished, challenging and integrated course of study in the history, literature, theory and practice of theater, both in the classroom and in production.

Peter Hackett, director
