Glory. Survival. Legacy. Citizenship. Four Latino boxers all chase a world title to achieve their personal versions of heaven. But to get there, they must battle each other, their own battered bodies, society, and the universe itself. All four men walk the line between life and death in this collision of combat and cosmos.
From Franky: “Four boxers seek the highest honor possible: not a championship, but a dream behind a black hole. I intended to write a boxing play. Instead, I wrote an interrogation of myself as a father, son, Latino, and artist. I hope, with Playwrights’ Center’s help, my play can reach greater heights.”
