The cast and crew of Chariots of Fire took to Victoria Park Friday to promote their play, set to run at the Grand Theatre London.

Chariots of Fire is the inspirational true story of two British runners, who overcome prejudice and conflict to compete in the Olympics.

“Just like this play is a little different, we decided to come out here and let it be known to Londoners in an unorthodox way,” said cast member David Michael Moote.

“The play is unlike anything you’ve ever seen before at the Grand Theatre, as we’re utilizing that stage in some pretty spectacular ways,” said cast member Brett Dahl.

“We may not be athletes, but we are going to use our imagination to really make you feel like you are at the Olympics,” said cast member Ellen Denny.

“We will be taking you there in ways that you might not be expecting. It’s really exciting,” she said.

Previews for the show will begin on April 17, while the play runs from April 20 to May 5.
