ONE NIGHT IN MIAMI…

Loading Events


BEFORE THEY WERE ICONS THEY WERE FRIENDS.

25 February 1964: Cassius Clay is crowned the new heavyweight champion of the world and celebrates with three of his closest friends – activist Malcolm X, American football icon Jim Brown and soul star Sam Cooke – in a downtown Miami motel room.

That much we know is true. What follows is an imagined account of a fabled real-life event.

Kemp Powers’ tough-talking, in-your-face drama speculates on what might have happened in that room that night. Over music, whiskey and two tubs of vanilla ice cream, the men wrangle with the change that’s gonna come. What will emerge are four legends that would define an era.

Directed by Matthew Xia (director of 2018’s acclaimed production Shebeen), One Night in Miami… is a play about prejudice and brotherhood, and asks us: on which side of the fence do we stand when hard choices need to be made?

One Night in Miami… received its theatrical stage premiere in the UK at the Donmar Warehouse on Tuesday 11 October 2016.

Praise for the Donmar’s production:

★★★★ “packs one hell of a punch” The Times

★★★★ “Powers has lit on a crucible moment” The Observer

★★★★ The Telegraph
