In honour of London's Olympic year, playwright, Mark Barlett, has written an adaptation of the 1981 historical drama film, Chariots of Fire. Set at the time of the 1924 Olympics, it is based on the true story of athletes, Eric Liddell and Harold Abrahams who both enter the tournament to bring glory to Britain. While Liddell runs for God, Abrahams runs in an attempt to overcome prejudice against Jews.
Now for the first time on stage, you can immerse yourself in the passion of two men's dreams, in their goal for gold, the struggles put on their beliefs, and the determination that just as in 1924, also brought victory to the London Olympics this year.
Performances are Monday to Saturday at 3pm and 7.45pm until the 2nd February at the Gielgud Theatre. Tickets are between £26-£55.
