'The Wholehearted' Calendar Release

December 2016


“The Wholehearted”
Conceived and Created by Stein | Holum Projects
Written and Co-Directed by Deborah Stein
Performed and Co-Directed by Suli Holum
Produced in association with La Jolla Playhouse
A World Premiere Production
A DouglasPlus Production


Set in a boxing gym where female boxing phenom Dee Crosby (Suli Holum) is preparing for a whole new fight, “The Wholehearted” looks past the neatly-packaged Cinderella stories of sports coverage into the real world of a woman grappling with lost love and an abusive husband. A tale of revenge and redemption, the violence of love, the sexuality of sports and the high cost of fame, this new play utilizes live projections, film and a thumping rockabilly score to explore the line between personal fantasy and hard reality—and what it takes to be a champion.
