ON THE WATERFRONT
at Theatre Royal Haymarket

A REAL CONTENDER
By ROGER B. HARRIS


On the Waterfront will begin previews at the Theatre Royal Haymarket on January 28. This stage adaptation of the 1954 classic movie is conceived and directed by Steven Berkoff. The play is co-written by original screenplay writer Bud Schulberg and Stan Silverman. Berkoff, by the way, will play Johnny Friendly.

The Oscar-winning movie, which starred Marlon Brando, Karl Malden and Eva Marie Saint, among others, is about an ex- prize fighter, Terry Malloy( who can forget Brando's lament " I coulda been a contender"), who becomes a longshoreman-and buts heads with his corrupt union bosses. Malloy will be played by Simon Merrells.
