Sucker Punch, Roy Williams’ drama about two young men coming to adulthood in 1980’s London, has been given a one week extension, Studio Theatre announced Friday. The play will now close April 15th.
The award winning, much praised play is the story of two talented black fighters trying to box their way to fame, fortune and a better life, as racial tensions simmer inside the gym, and, ultimately, as a race riot breaks out in the streets.
The scene where the two men, no longer friends, face off against each other in the ring is “Some of the most convincing and imaginatively rendered prizefighting you’ll come across in a theater.” – Washington Post.
