Checkmate is a surreal spoof somewhere between a satire of an Agatha Christie detective story and an exaggerated send up of a TV soap.
Checkmate is both a conventional comedy play and an interactive piece of theatre which is full of humour, and parodies the classic murder in the country mansion by hand unknown in a modern, surreal way while still remaining a fond pastiche of this type of theatre.
Imagine the board game, Cluedo, written as a soap opera for day time television and you approach the world of Checkmate, a new play in ETC’s home style.
