Plot

Written in 1984 by ABBA songwriters Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus, and Tim Rice, Chess tells a story of love and political intrigue.

Set against a backdrop of the Cold War, a romance develops between a chess player and the manager of another - will love unite nations or cause treachery on the world stage? 

From Bangkok to Budapest, the players, lovers, politicians and spies all struggle to get the upper-hand.
Featuring the international hit singles ‘I Know Him So Well’ and ‘One Night In Bangkok’.

Other well-known songs from the score include ‘Anthem’, ‘Someone Else’s Story’, ‘Heaven Help my Heart’ and ‘Pity The Child’.
