Winner of both Best Actor for Aonghus Óg McAnally and the Bewley’s Little Gem Award in Dublin’s ABSOLUT Fringe 2010.

Fight Night is a gripping journey charting the comeback of Dan Coyle Jr, a failed amateur boxer from a long line of accomplished fighters. Living in the shadows of his overbearing father and his brother’s Olympic success, Dan lets his training slip in favour of girls and booze. Then, an incident with his father minutes before a crucial bout splinters the family and exiles Dan from the ring. It’s not until the birth of his own son years later that his competitive fire is reignited, and he takes the first tentative steps on his road to redemption.

This fast-paced and heartfelt solo performance by Aonghus Óg McAnally combines intense physicality with a classic Dublin wit, in a storytelling experience that leaves audiences both uplifted and exhilarated.

FIGHT NIGHT was written and developed as part of Show in a Bag, an artist development initiative of Dublin Fringe Festival, Fishamble: The New Play Company and Irish Theatre Institute to resource theatre makers and actors.
