64 Squares archiveInspired by Stefan Zweig's novella The Royal Game. On board a decadent cruise liner in the late 1930s, the world's greatest chess champion is challenged to a match by a mysterious newcomer. As the strange opponent begins to play, the secrets of his dark past bubble to the surface and it becomes clear that the game is not the only thing he's at risk of losing. With a live jazz percussive score and their signature blend of ramshackle and cinematic performance, Rhum and Clay Theatre Company tell a story of madness, identity and finding a home in 64 black and white squares. Additional devising from Charlotte Dubery, Sacha Plaige and Jess Mabel Jones
