An elderly couple is frantically preparing chairs to welcome a procession of invisible guests to their isolated home, an uncertain space where anarchy, ageing and anxiety collide.
Who is the mysterious orator they all await? And what is the world-changing message that they have gathered to hear?
Intriguing, abstract and farcical, The Chairs is an iconic and rarely-performed play by Eugene Ionesco presented by the UK's leading visually impaired theatre company Extant.
As ground-breaking avant-garde theatre meets experimental sound design uncover a shared experience that explores relationships between things that are seen and unseen.
Take a look at the online programme to read more about the creation of The Chairs.
