Fish Men Chess Play - Humour, Pathos, and Super Story!

Chess blog for latest chess news and chess trivia (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2012

Hi everyone,

Here is a nice theatre production with chess as a main motif. Goodman Theatre, in Chicago, presents the Teatro Vista Production of 'Fish Men'. With biting humor and unexpected pathos, Fish Men focuses on a group of unforgettable characters, drawn together by a shared need to overcome their individual demons. On a hot summer day in Washington Square Park, New York, a group of chess hustlers engage in spirited matches played out in real-time, hoping to lure unsuspecting players into a high-stakes hustle. Their patience is soon rewarded with the appearance of Rey Reyes, a young professional who naively agrees to their challenge. But as the game progresses, the circumstances that stoke the fire of each player’s obsession with the game are revealed, laying bare their inner demons and devastations.

Check out all the show times here.
