Welcome to the dramaturgy site for UC Irvine’s 2017 production of Chess!

The resources compiled here are intended to give company and audience members in-depth and multifaceted insight into the historical, cultural, sociopolitical, and artistic influences that shaped both the original show and our updated version.



This site is curated by dramaturg Stephanie Lim, with generous help and support from UCI’s Performing Arts Librarian Scott Stone.
