Deise Musical Society are thrilled to present Chess the Musical. The musical was inspired by some of the political machinations surrounding the 1972 Fischer-Spassky World Championship match set to music by ABBA’s Björn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson with lyricist Tim Rice. Chess has one of the greatest musical theatre scores of all time including One Night in Bangkok, Pity The Child, Anthem, You And I and, of course, I Know Him So Well, which became a number one hit for Elaine Paige and Barbara Dickson.
