The definition of entertainment has remained malleable since the dawn of civilization, inclusive of everything from the gladiatorial feats of ancient Rome to modern butter-eating contests. Spend a cultured evening taking in a beloved modern art with today's Groupon: for $10, you get one ticket to The Fights at Rabbittown Theatre Company (a $20 value), located on Freshwater Road. Choose from four performances:
- Thursday, January 27th at 8 p.m.

- Saturday, January 29th at 2 p.m.
- Saturday, Jan 29th at 8 p.m.
Penned by local playwright Ben Pittman, The Fights weaves a story inspired by Newfoundland-born Bare-knuckle Prizefighter Johnny Dwyer and his knuckle-clad travails in 1870s New York City. As a parade of corrupt politicians and crooked saloon proprietors clouds the landscape of his fighter dreams, “Gentleman” Johnny’s will is tested, along with his fists and trigonometry prowess. Call ahead for reservations.
