The Chairs
Information for The Chairs at Almeida Theatre, West End (Play). An old couple live alone at the top of a building, their world has been destroyed by failure and humiliation. To justify their sad lives, they throw a party and invite guests from all walks of life to hear their story, told by a professional orator. This is a tragic farce, a black comedy, depicting the unreality of life and its emptiness, where the meaning is not in what is said but in the underlying passion and commitment.


Kathryn Hunter, Marcello Magni, Toby Sedgwick
