The Royale By Marco Ramirez Directed by Darryl V. Jones Bay Area Premiere Starts November 3 The Aurora Theatre in Downtown Berkeley presents The Royale, from Marco Ramirez, the award-winning writer of the hit TV series Orange Is the New Black and Sons of Anarchy, comes a tightly constructed, viscerally theatrical tale that has seen acclaimed productions in New York, London, Chicago, and Los Angeles. It’s 1905, and Jay “the Sport” Jackson is ready to take on both the current heavyweight champion and the entrenched discrimination of the Jim Crow era -- but is America ready for him? The Royale is inspired by the real-life experiences of Jack Johnson, the first African-American heavyweight world champion. With rhythmic and ingenious staging, Ramirez's contenders never physically engage in the ring; instead it's The Sport's internal struggle that delivers a sharp and surprising impact.
