Two of the world’s greatest chess masters battle it out at the world chess championships but their greatest contest is for the love of one woman. Written by Tim Rice and ABBA’s Bjorn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson, CHESS has one of the greatest musical scores of all time including “I Know Him So Well.”
Fusion Theatre was founded in 2000 as part of an effort to build bridges between young people from different political and religious backgrounds in the Lisburn area and has emerged as Northern Ireland’s premier youth theatre group winning numerous awards. In 2010 the group won a well-deserved place in the televised live heats of the Channel 5 show “Don’t Stop Believing”.
