Playwright: Adapted by Mike Bartlett
Following its recent sell-out run and 5-star reviews at Hampstead Theatre, Mike Bartlett's dazzling new adaptation, Chariots of Fire, has now transferred to London's West End.
Bring me my Bow of burning gold;
Bring me my Chariot of fire!
1924. The Paris Olympic Games.
A devout Scottish Christian runs for the glory of God. The son of an immigrant Lithuanian Jew runs to overcome prejudice. Two young track athletes who live for the beautiful purity of running and who prevail in the face of overwhelming odds.
Based on the extraordinary true story of Eric Liddell and Harold Abrahams, Chariots of Fire is an Olympic tale of hope, honour and belief.
The production features the music of the legendary Vangelis score with additional live music and arrangements by Tony Award winning composer Jason Carr. Directed by Hampstead Theatre's Artistic Director Edward Hall, Chariots of Fire is the theatrical event of our Olympic year.
