The Chess Player
by Richard McElvain

Imprisoned in solitary confinement by the Nazis, a stolen book of chess games allows The Prisoner to cling to sanity, dividing his mind into two feuding chess masters. Escape takes him further to the edge of madness as he challenges the greatest chess player in the world to a match, in Richard McElvain’s world premiere of Stefan Zweig’s classic short story.
