A BRILLIANT NEW PLAY
From the award-winning writer of the hit TV series Orange Is the New Black and Sons of Anarchy comes one of the hottest new plays fresh from its acclaimed New York run where it played to sold-out audiences and was a New York Times Critics’ Pick! Jay “The Sport” Jackson wants nothing more than to prove he’s the best boxer in the world but in the Jim Crow era, his chances are as good as knocked out. When a crooked boxing promoter hatches a plan for “the fight of the century,” The Sport just might land a place in the ring with the reigning white heavyweight champion. Set in a boxing ring and inspired by the true story of the boxer who broke the color barrier in professional sports, The Royale packs a punch that will leave you breathless.
