Bare Knuckle
  • Edinburgh Fringe

Bare Knuckle sheds light on the brutal (and often hidden) male world of bare knuckle fighting. This new one-man show specially written for the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, reveals the emotional battles between father and son. Jake Boston, the son of a champion bare knuckle fighter, explores in his compelling new piece the need to be the best, to keep getting up off the floor to throw another punch and his fathers desire to pass the title of champion on to him. He questions masculinity, father-son relationships, growing up as a misfit and the ongoing fight to find himself.
