Prize Fighter by La Boite Theatre Company
Preview, 9 October 8pm
All shows 8pm except Sunday at 6pm
Audio Described performance Saturday, 20 October 8pm
No shows Monday

A La Boite Theatre and Brisbane Festival Production by Future D. Fidel
Presented by Darebin Arts Speakeasy and Melbourne Festival

Get ringside for a rare theatrical combo: engrossing storytelling paired with the visceral thrill of live boxing.

Isa is a young Congolese boxer blazing an impressive career between the ropes. Gearing up for the national title fight, he soon discovers its not just his opponents he has to outdo, but the demons from his torturous past as a boy soldier.

Fleeing the Congo as a child, playwright Future D. Fidel lived in a Tanzanian refugee camp for eight years before being granted refugee status in Australia. Prize Fighter is inspired by his own story and those of the people he has known.

'Defeating your opponent needs strategies but defeating your memories requires more than just that. Regardless of who or what your opponent is, everyone is a Prize Fighter.' Future D. Fidel, Playwright

'The most perfectly structured, brilliantly produced and best acted new play' The Australian

Director Todd MacDonald
