Alfie’s First Fight is a new play by award-winning children’s author Oliver Sykes – for children (aged 5+) and their grown-ups.
Inspired by Oliver’s experiences growing up without a mum and being coached as an amateur boxer by his dad, Alfie’s First Fight is about 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, Alfie’s First Fight is an adventure story – think Crime-Thriller meets Rocky Balboa! But it’s also about love, loss, family and learning how to fight for what you want.
‘A positive and gripping story for kids that captures the true drama of the boxing ring’ – Ricky Hatton MBE
