Steven Berkoff directs an ensemble of 12 with his trademark style of bold physical theatre. This classic story set in 1950s New York follows the search for freedom from the mob by Terry Malloy, the guy who ‘coulda been a contender’.

Adapted from the iconic film starring Marlon Brando, which won eight Oscars.
