National Youth Music Theatre presents

Chess the Musical



At the height of the Cold War, 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 and political triangle.

Includes the international hit singles I Know Him So Well and One Night In Bangkok. Other well-known songs from the score include AnthemHeaven Help my Heart and Pity The Child.

This amateur production is presented by arrangement with Music Theatre International. All authorised performance materials are also supplied by MTI
