A Red Orchid Theatre presents

THE OPPONENT

By BRETT NEVEU
Directed By KAREN KESSLER
With KAMAL ANGELO BOLDEN & GUY VAN SWEARINGEN
"SWEARINGEN DELIVERS A BEAUTIFULLY SYMPATHETIC PERFORMANCE. BOLDEN OVERFLOWS WITH ENERGY."
-TheaterMania

"COMPELLING!"
-WomanAroundTown.com

Take a look at the hard world of boxing from the perspective of small time gym owner Tre and the young up-and-comer Donell. They come from different worlds, they barely understand each other, but in the ring anything is possible. Loyalty and dreams are put to the test in this explosive match that promises to pull some punches and fearlessly land the others.

"A GREAT NEW PLAY THAT DANCES, PARRIES AND, MOST IMPORTANT, LANDS SOME KILLER PUNCHES."
-Chicago Tribune

"TERRIFICALLY MUSCULAR PRODUCTION - PUNCHED OUT TO PERFECTION"
-Chicago Sun Times
