Fight Call: On the Welders’ new MMA play The Girl in the Red Corner

Today’s Washington City Paper has a feature from me about a new play from the DC theatre collective The Welders set in the milieu of mixed martial arts. It’s by Stephen Spotswood, a prolific dramatist whose work I have followed with interest for the last five years or so, and it’s the first play about a bloodsport here in DC since Studio Theatre did Sucker Punch in early 2012. (I did a feature on that one, too.) You can use the link above, or pick up a dead-tree copy wherever finer alt-weeklies are given away for free.
