Kicking all the Boxes A play by Liz Fitzgibbon
Kicking All The Boxes is the story of Naoise, a one-time champion kickboxer. We meet Naoise on her 15th birthday as she returns from winning a European kickboxing title; we next meet her 15 years later, on her 30th birthday, and, as the piece progresses, we are taken along three paths of the person she may become.
Reminiscent of a theatrical Sliding Doors, Kicking All The Boxes examines decisions and consequences, and the impact they can have on the journey a life can take. It holds a mirror up to a whole generation of 20- and 30-something-year-old women and asks: what do you do when life no longer parties with you, but instead looms large with the big questions? Do you batter it into submission until, kicking and screaming, it stops asking what you have to show for yourself?
Written by and starring Cork actress – and former European kickboxing champion – Liz FitzGibbon, and developed together with world-renowned performer and theatre-maker Mikel Murfi, the show is an explosive, physical, gut-busting – and utterly fabricated! – story like no other.
‘It’s a big challenge, both in terms of how physical the show is, and having to play 11 characters, but it’s been hugely rewarding.’ – Liz FitzGibbon
