Role Players Ensemble presents the Emmy-winning teleplay, Requiem for a Heavyweight
by Rod Serling (creator of The Twilight Zone
). This gripping and powerful drama explores the seedy underworld of professional boxing. For this production, Role Players Ensemble has transformed the Village Theatre into a 1950s television studio so that you can feel the excitement of being in the audience during a live television broadcast. This multimedia homage to the early days of television whisks you back in time to experience the beginnings of one of our major forms of entertainment. The teleplay tells the story of washed-up prizefighter Harlan "Mountain" McClintock and his attempt to adjust to life after boxing. 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.
