by Ensemble Member Brett Neveu

Dates:

Previews: October 18 – October 21, 2012

Regular Run: October 25 – December 2, 2012

Synopsis:

Accomplished playwright and ensemble member Brett Neveu takes 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.  Questions of loyalty and life’s dreams are put to the test in this explosive world premiere that promises to pull some punches and fearlessly land all the others.

*The Opponent was originally developed through Center Theatre Group’s Writers’ Workshop*
