Lent Week 7
"Wherever it was, whatever it was, I'd come with you...to the end, I'd follow you"
As the detritus of a past world stagnates, witness the creation of an optimistic but hollow fantasy of a world that could have been, and could be...
The old man and woman swamped in memories of the past sit on a Secluded island, isolated from the harsh reality of the post-apocalyptic world around them. They wait for The Orator to announce the Old man's plans for a future world, and as the audience amass we wait to hear what The Orator has to say.
An elegy for the past and a plea for a brighter future, The Chairs is a tragic farce that conflates the whimsical with an underlying despondency. That explores the endurance of relationships when faced with the realities of life.A fusion of music, movement and experimental set design, The Chairs promises to be a riveting theatrical event.
