About this show

In THE CHESS LESSON, three very different parents have come to take a chess class with their children's teacher. Despite everyone's best intentions, the adults keep turning into children, the class keeps slipping out of control, and the teacher is one romance novel away from a nervous breakdown. Four strangers all at a crossroads in their life, alone together in a classroom for children, have no choice but to examine who they are, and remember who they were.
