Queens is the story of an aging African-American boxer preparing for his final fight. Just one generation from slavery, he grew up fighting for his place in the world of Jim Crow America. For him, it’s not about the belt or the title, just one more job on the fight circuit. But also a chance to say he was here, that his life mattered. Set in the early 1900s, when boxing went from bare-knuckle to gloves, Queens will be created from scratch by an African-American cast and the Sandbox ensemble, led by Matthew Glover and Theo Langason. “Inspired and blown away by the artistry … the artists really make, and bring back, the magic of theatre.” —2015 Sandbox Audience Member
