Can two men raised to fight ever learn to love?

The story of ‘Gorgeous’ George O’Connell: traveller, bare-knuckle fighter, hero to his people and Gypsy King. George leaves this life behind and 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, the young pretender and son of a boxing legend. But Dane is fighting his own battles and they will ultimately lead to a tragedy that neither man could predict.

Two men who find themselves, and each other, in the most unlikely of worlds. ‘Gypsy Queen’ is an unconventional love story betwe...en two fighters who discover the greatest challenge lies outside the ring.

Fresh from a 2017 UK tour that included Edinburgh Fringe, London’s King’s Head Theatre and Hope Mill Theatre in Manchester, ‘Gypsy Queen’ is the new Hope Theatre Company production written by Rob Ward.

‘Gypsy Queen’ was recently nominated for two Manchester Theatre Awards for Best Fringe Production and Best New Play. At the 2017 Edinburgh Fringe writer Rob Ward was named as one of the British Council’s Emerging Artists.
