The Royale | The Guardian on Jack Johnson

“He whored and partied, seduced white women, drove fancy cars with reckless abandon, ran nightclubs, spoke a mangled version of French and mixed with gangsters, poets and princes. There was not a public figure of the age who could compare with Johnson for audacity and style – or white-baiting blackness.”

Kevin Mitchell writing in The Guardian

Loosely inspired by the life and times of Jack Johnson, The Royale runs at the Bush from 13 Mar – 18 Apr.
