Written by members of the pop group ABBA, this iconic 80’s musical develops the ancient game of chess into a metaphor for political and romantic intrigue. The loutish American Grandmaster, the earnest Russian Champion, the Hungarian-American Chess second, and the discarded wife all vie for attention and dominance. Think Trump-Putin and their minions in a ‘reality-TV’ style concert setting.
