Review: Bitch Boxer, Snuff Box Theatre, Pulse Fringe Festival, New Wolsey Theatre, Ipswich, June 6
Chloe, a 21-year-old London east ender, loves her dad, her boyfriend and women’s boxing.
In fact she’s in training to box down the road at the Olympic Stadium but then her dad is killed and her romance takes a dive.
However, her determination to win her big fight – if only for her dead dad – becomes the most important aim in her life.
Charlotte Josephine gave an adrenaline fuelled performance, bursting with energy and conviction as Chloe and seamlessly switching to become the other characters in this highly entertaining drama; her dad, her mum, her best friend, her boyfriend and her trainer.
Josephine showed fantastic commitment and focus and kept the show, packed with humour and pathos, moving forward at a fast pace.

The story-line became rather predictable but this was a riveting and very accomplished performance which was totally engaging.
