By Kate Tempest
Directed by James Grieve & Stef O’Driscoll
A Paines Plough and Birmingham Repertory Theatre production
Lyrical fireworks. Live music. A story of love and redemption.
Chess is in prison. Facing a lengthy sentence, her cell mate becomes her soul mate. But when Serena is given parole, Chess faces total isolation. Hope comes in the form of a music producer looking for a reason to love music again. She finds a powerful voice in Chess. But to harness her talent, Chess must first face her past.
Following her smash-hit debut Wasted and sell-out success Brand New Ancients, Kate Tempest is a back with an incendiary new play.
Paines Plough celebrates 40 years as the national theatre of new plays, delivering its biggest, boldest and furthest-reaching programme of work to date.
