Requiem for a Heavyweight
PLEASE NOTE: Pending the resumption of normal activities once the coronavirus outbreak abates, we intend to re-mount Requiem for a Heavyweight. Dates will be determined as soon as possible. At this time, we hope to return with our entire cast.
The legendary creator of the Twilight Zone originally wrote this script as a teleplay for the ground-breaking television series Playhouse 90.
Harlan "Mountain" McClintock, a once-promising but now washed-up boxer, burned out after years in the ring, faces the end of his career after he is savagely defeated by a younger boxer.
McClintock is a trusting soul, and despite betrayal and humiliation by his conniving manager, he regains his damaged pride and self respect with the help of a young social worker.
