Barrie: Talk Is Free Theatre presents the North American premiere of “Gypsy Queen” November 27-30
Friday, November 15, 2019
Fresh from sold-out engagements all over the UK, Gypsy Queen makes its North American Debut. This is the story of Gorgeous George O’Connell, bare-knuckle ﬁghter and traveler, who 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 is ﬁghting his own battles that lead to an outcome that neither could predict. Can two men raised to ﬁght ever learn to love?
