Can two men raised to fight ever learn to love? The story of traveller 'Gorgeous' George O'Connell, who enters the world of professional boxing, putting him on a collision course with his roots, his identity and his greatest fear. In the opposite corner, gay boxer Dane 'The Pain' Samson, young pretender and son of a boxing legend, is fighting his own battle, leading to a tragedy neither could predict. Back at the Fringe after a successful run in 2017, Gypsy Queen is a critically-acclaimed love story between two fighters who discover the greatest challenge lies outside the ring.
