Against the background of the Cold War in the late 1970s/early 1980s, superpowers attempt to manipulate an international chess championship for political ends.
Two of the world’s greatest chess masters, one American, one Russian, are in danger of becoming the pawns of their governments as their battle for the world title gets under way. Simultaneously their lives are thrown into further confusion by a Hungarian refugee, a remarkable woman who becomes the centre of their emotional triangle.
Songs include I Know Him So Well, One Night In Bangkok, Anthem, Someone Else’s Story, Heaven Help my Heart and Pity The Child.
The first West End revival since the original 1986 production.
