    THE ROYALE by Marco Ramirez
    A Tampa Bay Area Premiere
    September 20 – October 15, 2017

    WE THE PEOPLE…WILL FIGHT FOR OUR RIGHTFUL PLACE
    Charismatic African-American boxer Jay “The Sport” Jackson has a burning desire to become 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 being 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. This stylized and stunning play about the life of an outsider in American culture explores one man’s struggle while reflecting a much broader one.
