Chariots of Fire is a true story and is set during the Paris Olympics Games of 1924, following two track athletes Eric Liddell, a committed Scottish Christian and Harold Abrahams, an English Jew, as circumstances beyond their control add controversy to the race as they find themselves not just competing against each other – in their bids to become the world’s quickest runner and win Olympic gold.

Award-winning playwright Mike Bartlett‘s new adaptation was inspired by Colin Welland‘s original screenplay and the play will even feature that music.

Jack Lowden, who last year starred as the lead character, Cammy, in the National Theatre of Scotland’s production of the Olivier Award-winning play Black Watch, plays Liddell while James McArdle takes the role of Abrahams. Most recently McArdle starred in the RSC’s The Heart of Robin Hood in Stratford-Upon-Avon.
