September 21 – October 14
Jay “The Sport” Jackson needs one more win to become heavyweight champion of the world, but in the Jim Crow reality of 1905 America, his greatest opponent may not be in the ring. Inspired by the true story of trailblazing boxer Jack Johnson, The Royale bristles with the thrilling rapid-fire dialogue and rhythmic punctuation of playwright Marco Ramirez (Netflix’s Daredevil, Orange is the New Black). This powerhouse of a play brings to explosive life the ultimate fight for a man’s place in history and packs a punch that will leave you breathless.
