Multi award-winning Musical Youth Company of Oxford (MYCO) return to Oxford Playhouse with their stylish reimagining of the hit musical Chess.

Competitive gamesmanship, super power politics and passionate liaisons combine in a gripping story set against a background of the Cold War. An arrogant American and an earnest Russian meet at a high-stakes international championship in a show full of shadowy intrigue and romantic rivalries.

Considered by many to be one of the best musicals ever written, Chess is a powerful rock opera featuring lyrics by Tim Rice (Jesus Christ Superstar, Evita) and music by Benny Andersson and Bjorn Ulvaeus from ABBA. Its dazzling score features well-known and much-loved hits including I Know Him So Well, One Night in Bangkok and Anthem.

Chess is a must-see for ABBA fans and musical theatre lovers everywhere.

Duration: 2 hours 45mins with interval
