“You never forget your first fight. And you shouldn't, either.”

Tom and Simon have been mates since school; shared everything – homework, cars, girlfriends; you name it, they've both had their hands on it. But whilst Sy has always played it safe, Tom likes to push things to extremes… with occasionally violent repercussions.

After an ill-advised evening with the wife of local nutcase, Sy is starting to worry if Tom might have bitten off more than he can chew. He needs to get out of town, then he meets Foster. A former boxer with a left hook to die for (or from), Foster takes Tom under his wing. But is there more to his interest than meets the eye? And why won't he talk about his past?

Partly inspired by true events, a thrilling new play from the writer of My Favourite Summer and Housebound.

“Nick Lane is carving out quite a reputation as a writer of bittersweet comedies”. Public reviews
