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

Wonderful! Most well-enunciated, clearly understandable Shakesperean english we've ever heard!?
This play can often get lost in character changes and side characters and plot subterfuge, but not here - We could actually follow most of it! The subtle feminism and cross-gender machinations of Rosalyn were aptly portrayed by Ashley Wickett - I'm smitten! Anthony Fusco as the fool Touchstone was superb!
The acting was consistently top-notch - The younger additions to the ACT roster give great hope for the future!
Join us in celebrating the talents of the A.C.T. M.F.A.

Directed by A.C.T. Associate Artistic Director Mark Rucker.
