About THE ROYALE:

Told in six rounds and set in a boxing ring, The Royale is loosely inspired by the 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.

Through a succinct script and the beauty of sound, this intimate story of internal struggle proves that sometimes the most powerful fights are the ones we battle in our own minds.

Written by Marco Ramirez (Sons of Anarchy and Orange Is the New Black), The Royale brings the crackling energy of the early 20th-century boxing circuit to the stage.

Age Recommendation: 14+ for some violence and adult language
