"You might have noticed there are four of me.  Don't worry. You'll get used to it. I have."

A one man show performed by three actors and a drummer.

Welcome to B's mind. B's got some memories he wants to share with you. He wants to tell you about how he ended up on a cruise ship, playing chess against the current world chess champion. He wants to tell you all about his life and the choices he's made. The problem? He's been split into four and can't remember what happened. 

Accompanied by a live jazz percussive score, a tale of madness, memory and chess,  adapted from Stefan Zweig's The Royal Game.

The company... are energetic, ingenious with their movement, funny and the story is told with a fresh vigour. ★★★★
— Time Out
Rhum and Clay have come of age ... beautifully put together, intelligent and moodily atmospheric. ★★★★
