Muhammad Ali And Me

The story of a young girl and the world's greatest fighter

"This is a play that floats like a butterfly and stings like a bee."

- What's On Stage
Muhammad Ali And Me is the critically acclaimed coming-of-age story of a young girl growing up in foster care and her fantastical friendship with the legendary, Muhammad Ali. Ali was always full of surprises. He danced in the boxing ring, rapped at press conferences, recited poetry in TV interviews, preached Islam from the back of a Cadillac and invoked revolution in a generation. In the spirit of Ali, Muhammad Ali And Me is a rich, beautifully rendered production full of wonder told through poetry, dance, boxing, African acapella singing, audience interaction and integrated British Sign Language. Ali himself makes a guest appearance through verbatim text and original fight footage, with cartoon animation, pyrotechnics, magic tricks and a superbly eclectic 1970's sound track. Children under 14 must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
