THE STORY: Twenty years ago, Pastor Paul's church was nothing more than a modest storefront. Now he presides over a congregation of thousands, with classrooms for Sunday School, a coffee shop in the lobby, and a baptismal font as big as a swimming pool. Today should be a day of celebration. But Paul is about to preach a sermon that will shake the foundations of his church's belief. A big-little play about faith in America—and the trouble with changing your mind.

‘Ain’t about bein’ no Heavyweight Champion of the White World. It’s about bein’ Champion, period.’ '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. When a boxing promoter hatches a plan for the ‘Fight of the Century’, The Sport might land a place in the ring with the reigning white heavyweight champion, but at what cost? It’s not just a retired champ he’s facing, it’s ‘The Great White Hope’. In daring to realise his dream, is Jay responsible for putting African American lives in the danger zone? 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.

Clubbed Thumb commissions, develops and produces provocative new plays by living American writers. A ground-breaking, New York-based company with a precise curatorial vision and a remarkable track record for launching artists' careers, its work is fresh, charismatic, theatrical and funny. This play collection celebrates some of the boldest new writing by contemporary American playwrights from 2001 to 2019, bringing together writers from a range of career levels - some established, some unknown - that together represent a diversity of identity and perspective. With seven contrasting plays this is a perfect collection for study and performance, giving an important perspective on imaginative new writing for the stage. Clubbed Thumb commission plays that surprise and challenge what a play can be and what shape a story can take. Whilst they vary in style and content, they are always 90 minutes or under and feature substantial and challenging roles for all genders. From Pulitzer Prize finalists (Clare Barron, Will Arbery, Gina Gionfriddo) to Obie Award-winners and some of America's most celebrated new voices, each of these works are questioning, formally inventive, and exhibit a sense of humor. With a foreword by Artistic Director Maria Striar alongside artist interviews and reflections on their work, this anthology presents a vital survey of 21st century American playwriting. Plano by Will Arbery Tonight, and later, and earlier, three sisters (no, not those ones) are stricken with a series of strange plagues. Let's talk about family nightmares. I mean, uh, memories. Of Government by Agnes Borinsky The adventures of Barb the Teacher, Deb the Seeker, Heidi the Helper, Tawny the Addict and a host of others. With songs! Presented by Miss Marjorie Blain, her students, and members of the community. Light refreshments will be provided. Men on Boats by Jaclyn Backhaus Ten explorers. Four boats. One Grand Canyon. Men On Boats is the true(ish) history of an 1869 expedition, when a one-armed captain and a crew of insane yet loyal volunteers set out to chart the course of the Colorado River. Baby Screams Miracle by Clare Barron In which a freak storm knocks down all the trees in town and a prodigal daughter is taught a new way to pray. But the weird weather's not over yet. Dot by Kate E. Ryan In which old Dot and the weird kid from the neighborhood become friends. Set in that kind of Florida town that makes you wonder: is this tv, a book, or maybe even a cabaret? Slavey by Sigrid Gilmer In which Robert and Nora, a couple on the rise, get a big promotion, a bigger house, and a brand new slave. U.S. Drag by Gina Gionfriddo A serial killer named Ed stalks the city, luring his victims by asking for help. To protect themselves, a group of New Yorkers form SAFE, “Stay Away From Ed.” The first rule: don't help anyone. It's a matter of urban survival.

"A thought-provoking play about memory, its corruption and our insistence that technology help us outwit death."—The New York Times "It's the kind of experience that keeps unfolding in the mind long after the play is over."—Los Angeles Times In a future not far from our present, Marjorie spends her time rewriting her past in favor of her idealized memories, with help from the intriguingly innovative technology that allows her to do so. With deeply felt characters – both real and in the form of holograms or "Primes"—Jordan Harrison's widely acclaimed new play burrows into the most troubling questions of the digital age: are we replacing our memory with a false reality, and what does that mean about the preservation of the truth? Marjorie Prime ultimately asks whether manipulating our past is a corruption of history or a welcome consolation. Jordan Harrison's other plays include Maple and Vine, Doris to Darlene, Amazons and their Men, Act a Lady, Finn in the Underworld, Futura, Kid-Simple, The Museum Play, Standing on Ceremony, Suprema, and Fit for Feet. His children's musical, The Flea and the Professor, won the 2011 Barrymore Award for Best Production. Harrison is the recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship, a Hodder Fellowship at Princeton University, a Theater Masters' Innovative Playwright Award, the Kesselring Prize, the Heideman Award, the Loewe Award for Musical Theater, Jerome and McKnight Fellowships from The Playwrights' Center, and a NEA/TCG Playwright-in-Residence Grant.
