This one-woman show explores legendary boxer John L. Sullivan—a hard-drinking, 5'10", 220-pound Boston-born Irishman who toured the US by offering to "lick any son-of-a-bitch in the house.” The piece asks what it means to be strong, confronting the onset of “can’t” that is every athlete’s final opponent. Wearing a custom suit for the occasion, Black circumvents drag yet implies that "clothes make the man" as she incorporates the boxer into her own diminutive but sinewy 5'1", 105-pound frame.
