By Roy Williams

Sucker Punch Top / Details / The Company
Fri 11 Jun - Sat 31 Jul 2010

In the red corner: Leon Davidson- Black British champ or Uncle Tom?

In the blue corner: Troy Augustus- American powerhouse or naive cash cow?

Two former friends step into the ring and face up to who they are. Sucker Punch looks back to the 1980s and asks if the right battles have been fought, let alone won.

Roy Williams’ early work at the Royal Court was supported by Jerwood New Playwrights, in partnership with the Jerwood Charitable Foundation. His previous plays at the theatre include Lift Off and Clubland in the Jerwood Theatre Upstairs and Fallout in the Jerwood Theatre Downstairs, which was later made into a film for Channel 4.

Recent credits elsewhere include Category B, part of the Not Black and White season at the Tricycle and Joe Guy for Tiata Fahodzi at Soho Theatre.
