Stage Adaptation by Mike Bartlett
Screenplay by Colin Welland
Directed by Dennis Garnhum

April 17 to May 5, 2018 | SPRIET STAGE

CHARIOTS OF FIRE is the inspirational true story of two British runners, who overcome prejudice and conflict to compete in the Olympics. Eric Liddell is a devout Christian. Harold Abrahams is the son of an immigrant Lithuanian Jew. The two athletes prevail in the face of enormous odds as their story begins in 1919, and takes audiences through their trials and triumphs all the way to the 1924 Paris Olympics. The stage adaptation will feature the iconic music from the classic original film that won four Academy Awards (including Best Picture), along with several new pieces, arranged and composed by Dave Pierce. This immersive production, with a set designed by acclaimed Bretta Gerecke (Catalyst Theatre, Cirque du Soleil), will transform the theatre into an Olympic stadium including a running track through the audience, and up-close onstage seating!

Open Caption performances Friday, April 27 at 8:00pm and Saturday, April 28 at 2:00pm. Learn more.
