Pulsating with the rhythmic energies of blues, reggae and boxing, don't miss the uplifting new musical drama, On The Ropes. The play tells the incredible true story of Black British boxer, Vernon Vanriel – aka 'The Entertainer' – who arrived in London as part of the Windrush Generation, and his bare-knuckle for his right to UK citizenship.
Staged in a boxing ring, this energetic fusion of live music, humour and poetry is "a big-hearted show" (The Guardian) that packs a punch – don't miss out!
