Award-winning actress/playwright Chris Black enters the ring for a dramatic one-woman show in Tough, which is inspired by the life of famed boxer John L. Sullivan, who traveled coast-to-coast challenging people to fights. While Sullivan's background, rise to fame and decline motivate the performance, Black's interest also lies in what it means to be strong and how athletes and performers harness that "special something" to become extraordinary. Black opens the show by throwing her hat in the ring and announcing the rules of the game, all while enjoying some good whiskey. Don't miss this unique, gender-bending performance that mixes power and poignancy. Learn More

I love this play! Actors Theatre has, once again, produced a solid interpretation of a classic play. There was great attention to detail in the set design and lighting. For me, the most developed characters where Claire (Rachel Klyce), Julia (Jessica Risco) and Harry (Randy Hurst). I enjoyed watching them because they made their characters real...I could imagine myself joining the characters on stage for cocktails and chatting. It was unfortunate that the actress who played Edna seemed to be saying her lines as if she were reading from a script for the first time and the actress who played Agnes was hard to understand. I was not sure what she was saying...it was as if she had all of the classic dialogue memorized and then couldn't get it out of her mouth fast enough...I could not really get a sense of her character. Christian Phillips who played Tobias was good. Then, one-by-one, Claire, Julia and Harry arrived on the scene and the play unfolded into the award-winning drama that it was intended to be. I do want to see this again and recommend it highly.
