Winner of Best Actor and Bewley’s Little Gem awards at Dublin Fringe, and nominated Best New Play at the Irish Times Theatre Awards, Aonghus Óg McAnally returns with his smash hit solo show Fight Night by Gavin Kostick for a 10th Anniversary nationwide tour.
A gripping journey charting the comeback of Dan Coyle Jr, a failed amateur boxer living in the shadows of his overbearing father and his brother’s Olympic success. After years out of the ring, the birth of his own son reignites his competitive fire, and he takes the first tentative steps on his road to redemption. This fast-paced and engaging solo performance
combines intense physicality with a deeply emotional storytelling experience that will leave audiences both exhausted and exhilarated.
Beautifully played, a hugely athletic and emotionally flawless performance…Effortless theatricality…not complex, not elaborate, but completely gripping from start to finish. The Scotsman
Blistering little solo piece, a theatrical firecracker… an astonishingly well-honed physical dexterity that allows him to flit between characters in an instant. Herald Scotland
McAnally and Kostick deliver a knockout blow…Extraordinary… Stark, exhilarating, and cathartic.’ The Irish Times
