Post Chess På Svenska Translation
Does anyone know if there exists a full English translation of the Swedish version of Chess? I recently watched the DVD of the production and absolutely fell in love with it, but as I don't speak a word of Swedish I only have a vague understanding of many of the scenes (and most are incomprehensible).

I was searching through the forum archives here and found a couple links, but all had expired. If anyone knows where I can access a good English translation of the text that would be absolutely lovely.

There was someone on the forums a while back working on a full translation - not sure how far they got. Posted a couple trial runs on YouTube - here's the opening scene:

Past musical roles:
Dickon, The Secret Garden
Josh Baskin, Big: The Musical
Freddy, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels
Franz/Dennis, Sunday in the Park with George
Frederic, The Pirates of Penzance
Historian/others, Spamalot
