Muhammad Ali and Me: Dates and Details

Muhammad Ali and Me is the critically acclaimed coming-of-age story of a young girl growing up in foster care and her fantastical friendship with the legendary, Muhammad Ali.

Ali was always full of surprises. He danced in the boxing ring, rapped at press conferences, recited poetry in TV interviews, preached Islam from the back of a Cadillac and invoked revolution in a generation.
In the spirit of Ali, Muhammad Ali and Me is a rich, ‘beautifully rendered’ (What’s On Stage) production full of wonder told through poetry, dance, boxing, African acapella singing, audience interaction and integrated British Sign Language. Ali himself makes a guest appearance through verbatim text and original fight footage, with cartoon animation, pyrotechnics, magic tricks and a superb eclectic 1970’s sound track.

A must-see for Ali fans.’ AFRIDIZIAK ★★★★

this is a play that ‘floats like a butterfly and stings like a bee.’ WHAT’S ON STAGE ★★★★

    Great to see your wonderful writing and performance this evening.
    My 15 year old son and I were amazed at the casts ability to between characters and of course we were moved by both stories which worked so well together on so many levels.
    The boxing club tour sounds great too.
    Love and respect.
    That tall bloke you pulled up on stage.
