Director: Laurence Connor; Conductor: John Rigby; Music and lyrics: Benny Andersson, Bjorn Ulvaeus, Tim Rice

Chess was written by Tim Rice and ABBA's Benny Andersson and Bjorn Ulvaeus. It's a love story set against the backdrop of the Cold War, when the two warring superpowers were even attempting to manipulate an international chess championship for their own political ends.

The two greatest chess players in the world, one American and one Russian, are fully aware that they are political pawns as their primary battle for the title gets under way, but their lives are complicated even further by the arrival of an Hungarian refugee, who quickly becomes tangled up in an emotional love triangle. Their love story is thus a mirror to the wider political battle that is raging around them.

The score includes the hit songs I Know Him So Well, Anthem, Someone Else's Story, Heaven Help My Heart and Pity The Child.
