Ali Summit

by Idris Goodwin
directed by Robert Barry Fleming
commissioned by Actors Theatre of Louisville
part of the 45th Humana Festival of New American Plays


In 1967, Muhammad Ali met with a group of leading black athletes, who questioned him about his conscientious objection to serving in the Vietnam War. Idris Goodwin’s new play explores a defining moment in the story of a Louisville icon.

This work was supported by a Building Demand for the Arts grant from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation.
