The free premiere virtual performances of THE ART OF SACRIFICE: March 6 Sat.: 4 PM Pac/ 7 Eastern ;March 7 Sun.: 12 Noon Pacific/3 Eastern

"When I started writing The Art of Sacrifice, I thought it would be about brilliance and chess. Then it seemed to be about the cost of addiction, even to something beautiful. It turned out to be about the terror of raising a child in a winner-take-all country," says playwright Anthony Clarvoe. "The thrill of the play was writing a parent and child with ruthless ferocity, no limits and no filters, who share a dream and do not know how to let go."

This is a play written well before The Queen's Gambit was widely acclaimed and had entered into the national and international psyche. Anthony was indeed prescient as he has been before.
