"Shadow Boxing"

My latest reviewing assignment for British Theatre Guide was “Shadow Boxing” from new company Broken Souls – a pugilism-themed one-man play written by actor James Gaddas. It’s a site-specific piece, so the audience were ferried by coach from Chapter to the performance space – the Phoenix Amateur Boxing Gym in Llanrumney (not a part of Cardiff I get to very often). Bottom line: a very effective production of a well-written piece. It may well have been just as enjoyable in an actual theatre, but the venue certainly did a lot of work atmosphere-wise.
