Mate, the Untouchable Bobby Fischer Story

Theater Arts at Caltech presents Mate, the Untouchable Bobby Fischer story, written by Lolly Ward, and Directed by Brian Brophy Nov. 16.
In 1960, young chess phenomenon Bobby Fischer travels to Buenos Aires to compete in a tournament. Fischer becomes intimate with a woman for the first time, thrusting the genius into a new realm where the body triumphs over the mind. Fischer must battle for control or face the destruction of his life’s ambition. After achieving the title of World Champion in 1972, Fischer disappears from professional chess. From rich and admired to homeless and jailed, he succumbs to paranoia. He finds salvation in a Hungarian girl, the only one who can lure him back into the spotlight.
