Imprisoned in solitary confinement by Nazis, a stolen book of chess games becomes a prisoner’s only way to cling to sanity. Fighting madness, he chooses schizophrenia, surviving by dividing his mind into two feuding chess masters. After his escape, he dares himself to walk the edge of a volcano of madness as he challenges the greatest chess player in the world to a match.  Richard McElvain boldly reimagines Stefan Zweig’s classic in this world premiere.
