The Chairs

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.
Author Eugene Ionescu
