What do you do when the fight chooses you?
It's the fight of his life, and you’ve got a ringside seat!
The Sport Jackson wants a shot at the world title in a time when black and white boxers did not face off. And he's out to win at ANY cost. No matter the consequences.
So he comes out swinging and slinging words in a spectacular barrage of rhythm and heat, language and adrenaline, sinew and cocksure swagger. But in fighting for the recognition he deserves, will he—and those he loves—be strong enough for the responsibility that comes with this unprecedented undertaking?
The Royale is muscular, musical, kinetic: six intense rounds of riveting storytelling punctuated by syncopated dialogue and emotional right hooks. You’ve never seen, heard or felt a play like this.
The performance length is approx. 80 minutes, with no intermission.
Recommended for ages 13+ due to mild adult language and racial themes.
Children 6 and under who may cry or fidget are never admitted.
