Samenvatting

Jay 'The Sport' Jackson dreams of being 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 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. Through the sights and sounds of the early 20th century boxing circuit, The Royale examines society's relationship with our present-day cultural heroes and the responsibilities that are thrust upon them when they find themselves outside of the ropes. Loosely based on real events, The Royale brings to explosive life the sights and sounds of the early 20th century boxing circuit, and the ultimate fight for a place in history. The Los Angeles Times declared, 'The Royale reanimates this breakthrough saga for a new generation!'

Recensie(s)

'The Royale reanimates this breakthrough saga for a new generation!' Los Angeles Times; 'This story may be a century old...but Ramirez's 2013 text seems increasingly pertinent in racially fraught America, where resentment spills into violence and even victory may seem another kind of defeat.' Sunday Times; 'Bam! The Royale is a real knockout, a relentlessly gripping boxing drama that... is as thrilling as anything you'll see in London at the moment, stage or ring.' Time Out London
