Everybody’s Playing a Game…

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 think they are just playing chess, but they both unwittingly find themselves pawns of their own governments’ political manipulations as well as being caught up in an epic love triangle.

With music by ABBA’s Benny Andersson & Björn Ulvaeus, and book and lyrics by Sir Tim Rice, Chess soars with romantic ballads and sweeping melodies such as the global smash hits ‘I Know Him So Well’ and ‘One Night in Bangkok’ as well as much-loved standards like ‘Anthem’, ‘Someone Else’s Story’, ‘Heaven Help My Heart’ and ‘Pity The Child’. CLOC’s production will employ bold story-telling, epic vocals with a large cast, powerful contemporary dance and will feature state-of-the-art visuals with a large pop orchestra.

Chess is on at the National Theatre St Kilda, October 6-21, 2023.
