***** (5 stars) "One of the great treats of the summer", Sunday Times
With Olympics fever hitting London this summer here's your chance to celebrate one of this country’s most thrilling and greatest ever sporting achievements as the new critically acclaimed play, CHARIOTS OF FIRE, lights up the West End at the Gielgud Theatre.
Adapted for the stage by award-winning writer Mike Bartlett and directed by Edward Hall , this spectacular re-telling of the Oscar winning movie also features the hugely iconic Vangelis score.
Eric Liddell’s and Harold Abrahams’ quest to become the fastest men on earth is an electrifying and immensely moving tale of two men’s rivalry, and their unwavering determination to conquer the world in the face of prejudice and immovable beliefs.
