About The Royale

Becoming the undisputed heavyweight boxing champion of the world is Jay ‘The Sport’ Jackson’s ultimate dream. But, in the segregated United States of 1905, he doesn’t stand a chance. Inspired by the little known true story of Jack Johnson, The Royale tells the incredible tale of the African-American boxer who, in demanding the fight he deserved, also had to take on history. This extraordinary play by award-winning writer Marco Ramirez (Sons of Anarchy, Orange is the New Black) is set in a boxing ring and told in six heart-stopping rounds.
