The prizefighter hero in this play by one of America's most widely produced and prolific playwrights is an indestructible loser

After still another defeat, this time in London, he finds himself in the black section, Brixton, being cared for by a barmaid from Jamaica who goes to night school and dreams about a career in politics

This meeting of apparent opposites turns out to be a union of kinsmen as, over the course of several weeks, each learns to respect and love the other

"A wistful romance with a steeliness beneath the surface. . . . Has a precise sense of character, atmosphere and imagery" ~ N.Y. Times
