Mickey and his team of cornermen never seem to have much luck in the boxing world. The fighters they manage always end up losing and, after a disastrous last outing, no one wants to work with them. 

All that changes when they sign Sid, a young boxer whose winning ways catapult them into a world of success they’ve never had before. However, you can’t win them all – soon Mickey has to choose between the life he’s enjoying, and the wellbeing of his young charge.

Tragic and funny, Cornermen premiered at the Old Red Lion, London, in 2015. The play was revived in 2018 on a UK tour.

Cornermen is also available in the volume Plays from VAULT.

Press Quotes

'Thrilling...A striking new play by an exciting new writer'

The Scotsman

‘Detailed but passionate, funny but with real sinews and a firm, forceful message, Oliver Forsyth’s Cornermen is a smart and immensely enjoyable play… a real knockout’
