It seems to have had a decent amount of publicity. Previews from 29 November, and runs to 18 January.
Bit surprised there hasn't been more mention of this in UK chess circles (maybe I missed something).
Does anyone here know more of this (any backstory of those who are involved)?
Wonder what sources Morton-Smith has based his play on? I can't see any chess consultants credited - it sounds like he researched it himself (I just watched the short video on the Hampstead Theatre website, worth watching).Tom Morton-Smith’s gripping psychological thriller depicts a match that became a signature event of the Cold War, exploring how two very different individuals were co-opted to stand for contrasting political systems.
Maybe anyone who goes to see it could post a review here? (I might try and get to one of the showings.)
