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." - The New York Times
THE BRIXTON RECOVERY first appeared at Indiana Repertory Theatre in Indianapolis on January 19, 1977. Directed by Edward Stern.
