Description

MUHAMMAD ALI AND ME

The coming-of- age story of a black girl in care and the world’s greatest fighter.

By Mojisola Adebayo and the Ali Collective

Performed in memory and celebration of Muhammad Ali, The Greatest, 1942-2016.

‘Muhammad Ali and me have one thing in common: we were black in the seventies.’

Muhammad Ali and Me is the critically acclaimed coming-of- age story of a black, 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 Cadillac and invoked revolution in a generation.

Muhammad Ali and Me is designed for both D/deaf and hearing audiences. Jacqui Bedford’s character performs in British Sign Language
