Blade to the Heat

Scene Dock Theatre

By Oliver Mayer
Directed by Edgar Landa

MFA Year 3 Acting Repertory

Sexuality in and out of the ring is at the heart of Oliver Mayer’s exploration of the BIPOC boxing world of the late 1950s. Toxic hypermasculinity pits three elite boxers against one another, with more than a championship belt at stake, in a world where a single word can hurt more than any blow.
