Requiem For A Heavyweight

Victory Gardens Greenhouse Theater    1/10/2008 - 3/8/2008 (schedule)

Category:  Drama

When a doctor warns that even one more fight could kill him, washed up prize fighter Harlan “Mountain” McClintock finds his career at a sudden end. Having spent fourteen years in the ring, he faces the prospect of a life that does not include boxing and discovers that the skills that almost made him a champion don’t count for much in the wider world. Mountain is torn between the possibility of new love and a promising future offered by social worker Grace, and loyalty to his self-serving manager Maish, who wants to exploit the fighter on the lucrative professional wrestling circuit. Widely regarded as one of the greatest sports dramas of all time, Requiem for a Heavyweight is a gut-wrenching account of the merciless prizefight game and the human wreckage it leaves in its wake.
