Prize Fighter


By Future D Fidel


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

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.

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

Prize Fighter is adrenaline-pumping, full-contact theatre at its best.

"The most perfectly structured, brilliantly produced and best acted new play." - The Australian

Violence, sexual references and adult themes. Haze, smoke effects and strobe lighting in use.
