An international romantic drama played out against a backdrop of political intrigue and treachery provides the setting for Chess.
Set during the height of the Cold War, two of the world’s greatest chess players are about to battle for the World Championship. They both unwittingly find themselves pawns of their own governments’ political manipulations.
Caught in the cross-fire is the woman who arrives as the assistant to one player but falls in love with the other, finding herself ensnared in a triangle of power and love.
With music by ABBA’s Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus, and book and lyrics by Sir Tim Rice, Chess features global smash hits such as I Know Him So Well and One Night in Bangkok, as well as standards such as Anthem, Someone Else’s Story, You and I and Pity The Child.
CLOC will bring this dramatic and visually stunning spectacle to the National Theatre stage from October 6-21, and it will be a Knight to remember. Game, Match … Check Mate.
