Fetch Clay, Make Man

The Ensemble Theatre
3535 Main Street Houston

Fetch Clay, Make Man tells the fascinating story of the unlikely friendship between boxer Muhammad Ali and actor Stepin Fetchit. Set mostly during the mid-'60s, the young, vibrant Ali (then known as Cassius Clay) is winning bouts in the boxing ring and arguments outside of it about the dignity of African-Americans. Meanwhile, the faded Fetchit represents an older, uglier era. Once a millionaire due to his immense success playing racist stereotypes on the silver screen in the '20s, '30s and '40s, the actor is now broke and half-forgotten. In the days leading up to one of Ali's most anticipated fights against Sonny Liston, the prizefighter and the movie star form an unlikely and revealing friendship. Catch Fetch Clay, Make Man at Houston's Ensemble Theatre.
