CHESS

CHESS

Music by Björn Ulvaeus & Benny Andersson
Lyrics by Tim Rice
Directed by KATE BENNETT
Musical Direction by BILLY BULLIVANT
Choreographed by ABI VINTER

19th - 26th August 2017

Chess is used as a metaphor for romantic rivalries and the US-Soviet rivalry during the Cold War. The main characters form a love triangle: the ill-mannered American Grandmaster, the intense Russian champion who plans on defecting to the West, and the Hungarian born female chess second, who arrives at the international championships with the American but falls in love with the Russian. From Bangkok to Budapest, the players, lovers, politicians and spies all struggle to get the upper hand.

CHAPTER TWO

CHAPTER TWO

By Neil Simon
Directed by ROSEY PURCHASE

30th October - 4th November 2017

What happens when George Schneider, an American writer, still grieving for the loss of his wife meets an actress, Jennie Malone, and marries her within two weeks? Add to this his brother, Leo, and Jenny's best friend, Faye, and you have all the ingredients for a great play, based on the real life experience of Neil Simon himself! It is whimsical, touching, and funny in equal measures.
