Eugène Ionesco’s 1952 absurdist play, The Chairs, focuses on an elderly couple, who are preparing chairs to welcome invisible guests to their formal party. They talk with their unseen visitors, reminisce about their lives, and ultimately depart, leaving the Orator, the only visible guest, to deliver a momentous message.
