Alfie's First Fight
If you liked Roald Dahl’s Danny Champion of the World, the books of Jacqueline Wilson and the Rocky Movies, then you’ll love this ‘edge-of-your-seat storytelling’ (Manchester Libraries) one-man show, written & performed by children’s author Oliver Sykes.
Featuring boxing action, surprising plot twists, compelling characters and an inspiring boy-hero, this funny and heart-warming show is guaranteed to pack a punch – for children aged 5+ and their grown-ups.
Inspired by Oliver’s own experiences growing up without a mum and being coached as an amateur boxer by his dad, the show centres itself around shy twelve-year-old Alfie, as he decides to go in search of his missing older brother, Jacob, when he disappears moments before an all-important boxing match…
On the surface, it’s a simple adventure story. But it’s also about love, loss, family and learning how to fight for what you want.
