Alfie's First Fight at Z-arts, Manchester, 10 July 2022, from £6.00 - Book now

A show described as ‘Crime-Thriller meets Rocky’, Alfie’s First Fight at Z-Arts is for children aged 5+ and their grown ups, taking place on Sunday 10 July 2022. The production, at first glance, is about boxing, but at the core of this moving, heartwarming and hilarious performance is a powerful story of love, family, and loss, and the importance of fighting for what you want.

The compelling production is based on the book by Oliver Sykes, in a story inspired by Oliver’s personal experiences of growing up without a mum, and being coached by his dad for five years as an amateur boxer. In this story, twelve-year-old Alfie Shields goes searching for his older brother, Jacob, who has gone missing just moments before he is about to play in a very important boxing match. While on the hunt for his brother, Alfie encounters two very dodgy looking men who want to get their hands on the boxing prize money! Can he save the money and get his brother back in time for the match, or might he have to take his place in the ring?!

Alfie’s First Fight cleverly captures the nerves and adrenaline of being a boxer, while also exploring the challenges of being a single parent and living in a working class family, through an honest and funny account that beautifully shows the love between a father and son, and two brothers, while it is a show for children, parents will enjoy it too, due to its important themes and the way in which it explores complex issues in a simplified way.
