Synopsis – ‘The Gambit’ by Mark Reid

“Some things are not a game. Some things really hurt.”

Twenty-five years of betrayal played out on a chessboard. The lies, deceit and anger erupting in an epic clash between the defining Grandmasters of the 20th century.

Award-winning new writing in the tradition of plays such as Frost/Nixon and Copenhagen, The Gambit features a thrilling battle of wits between two titans of Chess with opposing outlooks on life, each other and the game itself.
