Multi award-winning Musical Youth Company Of Oxford (MYCO) return to the 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 Sir 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.
