Seaside REP Play Reading: The Chairs
The Chairs is an absurdist "tragic farce" written in 1952 by Eugene Lonesco. The play concerns two characters, known as Old Man and Old Woman, frantically preparing chairs for a series of guests who are coming to hear an orator reveal the old man's discovery, which is implied as being the meaning of life. The guests supposedly include "everyone", implying everyone in the world. As the “guests” arrive, the two characters speak to them, and reminisce cryptically about their lives. Finally, the orator arrives to deliver his speech to the assembled crowd.
