Chess is a powerful love story set amid the tensions of the Cold War, World Championship Chess and the accompanying frenzied media circus. The central love triangle involves the American Grandmaster, the Russian champion and the woman who manages one but falls in love with the other.
With lyrics by Tim Rice and music by Björn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson, of ABBA fame, this award-winning show features the hits ‘I Know Him So Well’, ‘One Night In Bangkok’, ‘Pity The Child’ and ‘Anthem’.
