When Mira walks out of an abusive marriage, her outreach worker recommends that she attend a weekly boxing class full of women with similar experiences. They seem to be focused on helping her recover her confidence, and get to the bottom of what really happened in her marriage.
However, as she gets stronger and digs deeper into the women's stories, she uncovers an unsettling truth that makes her question her own actions.
Bootcamp asks what happens when you can no longer see the line between victim and perpetrator. It is a play about the process of healing, about women learning to adapt to a carnal part of themselves, and the lies we tell ourselves in order to survive.
Bootcamp will be receiving its first public reading as a work-in-progress as part of the Women at RADA initiative on 28th February.
