THE ROYALE

October 10-November 4, 2018

1905-1910. America. Various cities. Jay “The Sport” Jackson dreams of being the first black heavyweight champion of the world, but in the segregated world of boxing, his chances are as good as knocked out. When a crooked promoter hatches a plan for the fight of the century, Jackson finds himself facing the reigning white defender. By unmasking the early 20th century boxing circuit, playwright Ramirez examines a long-held fascination with athletic heroes and the responsibilities thrust upon them outside of the ropes. Loosely based on real events, The Royale brings to explosive life the ultimate fight for a place in history.
