Harlingen CISD presents two upcoming productions

HCISD sweet science bruising wiltons webThe Harlingen Performing Arts Center invites you to “break-out your gloves” with them as they follow four women breaking free from their prescribed societal roles in order to perfect The Sweet Science of Bruising.

Set in 1869 London, author Joy Wilkinson skillfully illustrates the battle for women’s rights through a heart pounding, invigorating scene of women’s boxing. It is a story of four very different Victorian women who are drawn into the dark underground world of female boxing by the eccentric Professor Sharp. Controlled by men and constrained by corsets, each finds an unexpected freedom in the boxing ring. As their lives begin to intertwine, their journey takes you through grand drawing rooms, bustling theatres, and rowdy Southwark pubs, where the women fight inequality as well as each other. But with the final showdown approaching, only one can become the Lady Boxing Champion of the World.
