Told in a boxing ring over six rounds, The Royale is an electrifying adrenaline rush that shows us the deeply human cost of making history. From playwright Marco Ramirez (Orange is the New Black, Daredevil) comes the often overlooked story of World Heavyweight Champion Jack Johnson - who at the height of the Jim Crow era – became the most famous black man on Earth.
