Working Title for Boxing Play

Joe Janes suggested that the title of the boxing play wasn't a good indicator of what you get with the script.
Seriously. I don't think it reflects the weight and depth and grittiness of your play. It's not as compelling as the story is.

I agree with him, so I've been thinking...
I'm thinking of changing the working title of the boxing play from "I Can't Go Down" to simply

THE MEATLOCKER

thoughts?

It's no "Monkypants," but I like it.

Not only is it the main character's nickname, it also works as a metaphor for boxing and the overall outlook on life in the play. That Joe guy is smart.

Janes is a hack - remember, he came up the title of WNEP's first scripted show "The Silence of the Frogs" in 1993.

I do like "The Meatlocker" though.

It's a better placeholder title, but I still don't think that's the one.
