After a sell-out 2019 spring tour, LGBTQI play Gypsy Queen returns to Manchester.

Set in the competitive world of boxing, Gypsy Queen is an unconventional love story between two fighters who discover the greatest challenge lies outside the ring.

The production comes to Manchester’s Hope Mill Theatre from September 17–21.

It returns to Manchester after visiting Moss Side Fire Station Boxing Club earlier this year as part of its third UK tour in a special site-specific performance, and previously played at Hope Mill Theatre in 2017.

It tells the story of ‘Gorgeous’ George O’Connell, a bare-knuckle fighter and traveller, who enters the world of professional boxing which puts him on a collision course with his roots, his identity and his greatest fear.
