First Look at One Night in Miami... at Donmar Warehouse
One Night In Miami… is written by Kemp Powers and directed by Kwame Kwei-Armah. The cast features Sope Dirisu as Cassius Clay, Francois Battiste as Malcom X, David Ajala as Jim Brown and Arinzé Kene as Sam Cooke.
"25 February 1964: 22-year-old Cassius Clay (soon to become Muhammad Ali) has just won the world heavyweight boxing title. Instead of hitting the town, he chooses to celebrate in a Miami hotel room with three close friends – activist Malcolm X, singer Sam Cooke and American football star Jim Brown. This fictional account of a real night imagines what might have happened in that tiny hotel room. As the Civil Rights movement stirs outside, and the melody of ‘A Change is Gonna Come’ hangs in the air, four men will emerge from that one night ready to define a new world."
Performances run through to 3rd December 2016 at the Donmar Warehouse.
