A Game of Chess

A Game of ChessT321886089
In a fantasy world of Kings and their Pawns every move must be calculated, and the costs of 'checkmate' are incalculably high. Playing out anxieties about England's relationship with Spain, this 'scandalous, impious, and barbarous' comedy ran for an unprecedented nine performances before it was halted by the authorities.
Author Thomas Middleton
