Gypsy Queen

Gypsy Queen


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 between 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.
