The Royale returning to the Bush Theatre this November!

Written by award-winning American writer Marco Ramirez (Sons of Anarchy, Orange is the New Black), The Royale returns following a sell-out run in spring 2015.

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...

Told in six rounds and set in a boxing ring, The Royale is inspired by the often overlooked story of Jack Johnson, a boxer who – at the height of the Jim Crow era – became the most famous and the most notorious black man on Earth.

The Tabernacle is a grade-II listed former church in Notting Hill. It has lived through the many changing faces of west London, from slum empire to swinging sixties hang-out and the birth of Notting Hill Carnival. In 1973 the Tabernacle was opened as a community centre and soon became the focal point of the local black community. In the ‘90s, the North Kensington Sports Academy trained young boxers at the Tabernacle, and the building continues to host amateur boxing matches today.

This is only a limited run so do not hesitate and book your tickets now!
