Burke treads Chess boards

-

Alexan­dra Burke is pre­par­ing for her new stage role in Chess. The show, writ­ten by Benny An­der­s­son and Bjorn Ul­vaeus of Abba, is back in the West End for the first time since 1986, and also stars Michael Ball.

The show tells a story of love, po­lit­i­cal in­trigue and, yes, a chess cham­pi­onship set dur­ing the Cold War.
