About the Show/Event
Information for F*ck Off at Bread and Roses, Inner London (Play). 'Decisions, decisions, decisions to make; all of my decisions having been f*cking sh*t mate.' Meet Henry M'Gill; middle-weight champion, undefeated, sporting icon but a loser at life. Boxing is all Henry knows. No Mum. No Dad. No nothing. Fighting other people is second nature but the hardest fight is face to face with himself. From care home to The Vegas Strip, Henry M'Gill goes from strength to strength but whatever goes up, must eventually come crashing down. Henry's dependency on drugs, women and violence soon catches up with him with serious consequences as he's forced to take a long hard look at himself in the mirror. Be prepared to watch Henry scrap for his life as every scene plays out like a round from a championship fight. Taking shots to the body, the face and the heart, M'Gill continues to move forward, never giving up never backing down despite the odds, despite the critics he bites down on his gumshield and asks for more. F*ck Off. examines the trauma inherited from parents and childhood, and whether it really is possible to escape the life you are conditioned for.
