Seconds out, round two – The Royale returns to pack another punchJay ‘The Sport’ Jackson dreams of being the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world. But it’s 1905 and, in the racially segregated world of boxing, his chances are as good as knocked out.
Told in six rounds and set in a boxing ring, The Royale is inspired by the often overlooked story of Jack Johnson, a boxer who – at the height of the Jim Crow era – became the most famous and the most notorious black man on Earth.
“Ain’t about bein’ no Heavyweight Champion of the White World. It’s about bein’ Champion, period.”
Written by award-winning American writer Marco Ramirez (Sons of Anarchy, Orange is the New Black), The Royale returns following a sell-out run at the Bush in spring 2015.
