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.

Unlike film, theatre doesn't have an official age classification organisation. That means all age recommendations are subjective and should be treated as guidelines unless otherwise stated. With this in mind, we ask you to use your judgement in regards to a show’s suitability prior to purchase. However, we are more than happy to help you make a decision. Please email our Customer Care team to find out more about your chosen show.
