    The Chair traces the key transitions in a Singaporean family’s ancestry, observing the evolution of a bloodline from rough immigrant labourers to educated businessmen and women. The members of the family gain affluence, survive war, and fight among themselves, with a chair being passed from generation to generation, witnessing it all. The importance of this story lies in its characters and how they are portrayed, the nuance of Singaporean behaviours and relationships, and the shared history of the nation. This show is meant to provide an insight into what makes Singapore and its people the way it is.
