Costumes for Chess

With music written by Benny Andersson and Bjorn  Ulvaeus  of Abba fame and lyrics by Tim Rice, Chess is a popular musical for many drama societies.

Set in northern Italy, Chess tells the story of an American chess champion’s attempt to hold his world chess title against a new Russian challenger against the context of a cold war struggle between the two countries. A romantic triangle evolves between the woman who manages one and who falls in love with the other.

The set is usually dramatic with black and white squares like a chess board with costumes of the period in black and white.

Admiral costumes have a good selection of costumes from the 1950’s to present day suitable for this production.
