Cut and pasted from the Chariots of Fire Website:


Celebrate one of this country's most thrilling and greatest ever sporting achievements this Summer, as Chariots of Fire lights up the West End at the Gielgud Theatre.

Adapted from the legendary Oscar-winning movie, this spectacular and ingenious retelling of Eric Liddell's and Harold Abrahams' quest to become the fastest men on earth is an electrifying and immensely moving tale of two men's rivalry, and their unwavering determination to conquer the world in the face of prejudice, immovable beliefs and overwhelming odds.

Adapted for the stage by award-winning writer Mike Bartlett and featuring the original, hugely iconic Vangelis score and a magnificent ensemble cast under the direction of Edward Hall, Chariots of Fire brings alive the incredible true story of two British athletes whose honour, sacrifice and courage brought them glory and immortality on the greatest sporting stage of all.

In an extraordinary Summer, this is one theatrical event that will leave you breathless with excitement.

Raks's Reaction

"The Theatrical Event of 2012". I fully agree with this statement and I am backing the production 100%.

I saw it 3 times at the Hampstead and it totally and utterly blew me away. I thought it was one of the most amazing things I have ever seen at the theatre. It made my heart race and stop dead at the same time! In a nutshell, mind-blowing and amazing. Truly exceptional.

My full review (I saw it at the Hampstead) is here:
