The world would come to know him as Muhammad Ali, but on 25 February 1964, a twenty-two-year-old Cassius Clay celebrated his world heavyweight title not by hitting the town, but in a hotel room with his three closest friends ...

Activist Malcolm X

Singer Sam Cooke

And American football star Jim Brown

To the outside world they were American icons

But in that hotel room were four men who understood each other and their moment in history in a way that no one else could

With the Civil Rights movement stirring outside, and the melody of A Change is Gonna Come hanging in the air, these men would emerge from that room ready to define a new world


"This is a play of words and ideas ... powerfully articulated" ~ Financial Times

"A rich and fascinating play an illuminating and enlightening experience" ~ Independent

" ... although the setting is historic, the issues remain as timely as ever ... "You brothers are our bright shining future," says Malcolm X at one point, but Powers' play raises urgent questions as to how that is to be achieved ... it is still stirring to hear the path to racial progress being argued with such passion and presented with such fervour ... I wished the play, at 90 minutes, had been longer, but in evoking the dreams and aspiration of the past, Powers makes you think about the persistent inequalities of the present" ~ Michael Billington, The Guardian ★★★★

'Crackling good dialogue and timely themes Powers weaves together multiple strains of plot and character with a seasoned pro's skill. His mission to present a believable slice-of-life with contemporary resonance is, like Clay's, achieved in a decisive knockout.' Variety

'Great theater hits you hard and in many places. That's exactly what you get from the powers of this play" ~ Baltimore Sun

"Superb across the board breathtakingly good. There just aren't enough superlatives. Powerful, funny, exhilarating" ~ ArtsBeatLA
