Told through spoken word and within timed boxing rounds, Until You Hear That Bell is a story about amateur boxing and family. It’s about doing something for ten years, and slowly getting good at it. A story about dealing with pressure. Physical danger, family responsibilities, doing well at school and having no clue what is coming next.
Birthed from the 2010 Roundhouse poetry collective, Sean has won Literary Death Match twice, performed on Channel 4’s Random Acts and co-hosts the monthly poetry night, BoxediN.
'Until You Hear That Bell is a real testament to the power of the spoken word...a short but powerful piece that will resonate with anyone who’s ever worked hard in pursuit of a dream. ' ★★★★ London Theatre
