The Paris Olympic Games—1924. Two young men vie for the title of “fastest man alive.” One is an eloquent and devout Scotsman running for the glory of God.

Why This Show

Chariots of Fire was one of the most definitive and inspiring movies I watched as a young storyteller. What part does faith play in our aspirations and dreams? Can inspiration take us further than we could ever imagine? Staging this show is a massive challenge, so we’ll have to imagine the impossible! Talk about faith!
