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.
“…(a) breakthrough saga for a new generation.” – Los Angeles Times
“….captures both the beautiful frenzy of boxing and the volatile state of race relations in America.” – The Telegraph

WE THE PEOPLE…ARE RIDICULOUS IN LOVE
As World War II is drawing to a close, Beatrice rails against the roles expected of women of her era. Benedick has just arrived home from the war and is not ready to be tied down. Who needs marriage?! The two face off in a hilarious battle of wits in this American Stage take on the Bard’s famous romantic comedy about the war between the sexes. Full of live music and dance and set against the backdrop of the bright sunshine of the Florida Keys, this exuberant, philosophical, and festive play reminds us that no one is immune when it comes to matters of the heart.
