The Royale

Tucson: 09/07/19 - 09/28/19*

Phoenix: 10/03/19 - 10/20/19*

A power-packed boxing drama.
 
Winner of two Obie Awards, an Outer Critics Circle Award, and a Drama Desk Award, and multiple other awards and sold out houses in London, New York and LA. The Royale is not your usual sports play. First of all, it is not really about life in the ring. Second, not a single punch will be thrown, at least not with fists. The play is a deeply theatrical and emotionally moving piece about the life of the outsider in American culture. Set in 1910, deep in the midst of Jim Crow, it explores one man’s struggle while reflecting a much broader one. It is also a play about a brother and his sister – his sister, who as he climbs for glory and respect, remains his greatest adversary and strongest motivation.
 
“Original and graceful. The Royale packs a punch!” – The New York Times

A powerful, musical love story centered on Sally Bowles, a talented cabaret performer at Berlin’s Kit Kat Club and Clifford Bradshaw, a struggling American writer looking for inspiration.

Screw the mid-life crisis; let’s solve some crimes! Middle-aged mom Liz has a new man. And let’s face it… he’s just plain creepy. When a mysterious disappearance sets the community on edge, Liz’s best friends leap to the rescue as the zany caper flings them from the ‘burbs’ to the wilds of Utah; because there’s no danger great enough to stop women from solving crimes if they want to! A riotous comedy about trading in wine glasses for spy glasses when the mid-life crisis just isn’t your speed.
 
“The laughs in Wendy MacLeod’s play, come fast and furious…It’s all good, silly fun, directed with precise comic timing by the seasoned Sean Daniels… a new work that’s modern, lively, and loads of fun.” – Boston Globe
