One Night in Miami

Rogue Machine Theatre

This speculative drama imagines what may have transpired the evening of February 25, 1964 after Cassius Clay beat heavyweight champ Sonny Liston. After the win, Clay celebrated with his famous friends: singer Sam  Cooke,  football player Jim Brown, and activist Malcolm X in the activist's hotel room. The next day, Clay announced his affiliation with the nation of Islam; he would later become Muhammed Ali. This play imagines what happened in that hotel room on that fateful night.
