Cutter is a young black woman fighting. Fighting in the space made by loss – loss of her family, loss of her community, loss of her self-respect and self-control.

This powerful play explored boxing as a discipline rather than a weapon, and the temptation to self-harm when it all becomes too much.

A story of inter-generational love, and underscored by a vibrant soundtrack, Cutter offered a gritty insight into a young person’s struggle for identity.

The production toured nationally to venues and schools.

You can access the script of this play via the British Library’s MPS Modern Playscripts Collection.
