Corporal Joe Donaldson’s suppressed sexuality finds vent only in violence, honed by his military training. But then he meets Carl and is propelled headlong into unknown waters – the world of a celebrity boxer and infatuation with a young man whom life has taught not to trust love or commitment. Joe’s confusion, and his violent instincts threaten to destroy them both.
Essentially a love story inspired by Merimée's immortal Carmen, Come Out Fighting explores male sexuality and its testosterone-driven links with violence. Two squaddies are pitched into a desperate, sado-masochistic affair, fuelled by jealousy, anger and betrayal where fighting and sex become indistinguishable
Come Out Fighting has passion, action, comedy - even a rap number - and something to say to everyone.
