Fight Night

Fight Night

One Chance. One Shot. Fight Night. No Excuses.

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 re-ignited, and he take the first tentative steps on his road to redemption.

This fast-paced and engaging solo performance combines intense physicality with a classic Dublin wit in a storytelling experience that will leave audiences both exhausted and exhilarated.

The critical consensus

Sheehan manages to deliver every nuance of Kostick's words with clarity, wit and a lightness of touch that suggests, as with Dan, he's punching well above his weight.

Has a kind of effortless theatricality, as Dan tells his story, and demonstrates his training regime; not complex, not elaborate, not expensive to present, but completely gripping from start to finish.
