Pat Drummond's "The Chess Set"
8pm Saturday 10th June 2006

By Christina Mimmocchi
Posted Sunday, May 14, 2006

A night of music and theatre that might leave you thinking that our world is more than just black and white. There are two sides to every story in The Chess Set, a show which has been described as a "ambitious, provocative and political". Pat Drummond plays not one, but two characters: the white knight versus the black knight – which will prevail?

English folk legend Ralph McTell has said of Pat: "His presence on stage is both energising and awesome". Pat has performed The Chess Set at music festivals around the country to rave reviews.

Also playing on the night will be Christine Wheeler (vocals, guitar, Irish flute) and Cliona Molins as Freshwater.
