From an episode of Breakfasters
Pacharo Mzembe and Ratidzo Mambo on Breakfasters
Prize Fighter tells the story of a young man’s journey from child soldier in the Congo to heavyweight boxer in Australia and how he struggles to fight the demons of his past. Two of its stars – Pacharo Mzembe and Ratidzo Mambo – give the Breakfasters their take on the confrontational themes of Prize Fighter, the emotional and physical demands of their characters and what such a performance means – not only to themselves as Australians of African background, but to every audience member. Prize Fighter opens tonight at Northcote Town Hall.
