With music by ABBA's Björn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson (Mamma Mia) and lyrics by Tim Rice (Evita), this musical drama involves a romantic triangle between two top players -- an American and a Russian -- and the woman who manages one and falls in love with the other. Loosely based on the lives of chess grandmasters Bobby Fischer and Anatoly Karpov, the rock opera plays out against the Cold War struggle between the United States and the Soviet Union, with each wanting to win international tournaments for purposes of propaganda.

A gleefully gruesome comedy from the Oscar-nominated author of In Bruges, about a merciless Irish terrorist and the thing that matters most to him in the world: his precious black cat, Wee Thomas. Turn off your political correctness meter and wallow in this outrageous, blood-drenched farce from one of Ireland’s most acclaimed contemporary writers. You won’t believe your eyes!
