The royale



A play told in six rounds and set in a boxing ring, The Royale tells the tale of Jay 'The Sport' Jackson, a boxer who dreams of being undisputed heavyweight champion of the world. The problem? He's an African-American boxer in Jim Crow Era America.

Written by award-winning American playwright, Marco Ramirez.
