Based on historical research into 19th century women’s boxing, Joy Wilkinson’s electrifying new play examines gender, class, violence and the balance of power in a corseted world.

The Sweet Science of Bruising is a production of the Dartmouth Department of Theater and is part of a mission to provide students with a distinguished, challenging and integrated course of study in the history, literature, theory and practice of theater, both in the classroom and in production.
