The Machine / Matt Charman’s Play


 The ground-breaking chess battle between Garry Kasparov and computer Deep Blue in 1997 was a pivotal moment in the relationship between man and technology. Matt Charman’s new play The Machine explores the human drama at its centre. Charman’s The Machine, which has its world premiere at Manchester International Festival in July, focuses on the two human geniuses behind one of the world’s most controversial chess matches. On one side was Russian world chess champion Garry Kasparov. On the other, IBM’s Deep Blue super-computer, whose chief architect was Taiwan-born Feng-Hsiung Hsu. The actors set to play the role of  GM Kasparov (Hadley Fraser) and  Dr.Hsu  the “wunderkind engineer” behind chess machine Deep Blue, will be played by Kenneth Lee.
