This is an exciting way to show your support for the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, while having a memorial musical evening.

Before the global explosion of Mamma Mia! came Chess. From the musical minds of ABBA’s Benny and Bjorn and the lyrical pen of Sir Tim Rice, we perform this West End and Broadway hit at Edinburgh Festival Theatre and the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. Set against the backdrop of the Cold War, two Soviet and American chess grandmasters engage in strategic battle, fighting for their beliefs, personal glory, and the love of the same woman.
From the creative team behind the RCS’s critically acclaimed productions of West Side Story and Cabaret.

“absolutely no weak link in the whole company…a complete triumph” *****
(The Herald on Royal Conservatoire of Scotland’s 2016 production of Cabaret)

This amateur production of “Chess” is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, LTD.

Supported by Corney & Barrow, Independent Wine Merchants.
