Special Yale Event at Cutting Ball Theater - Ionesco's "The Chairs"

"… probably one of the best theater of the absurd productions to be seen locally -- ever" - SF Examiner

   
The Cutting Ball Theater Presents

The Chairs
by Eugène Ionesco
in a world premiere translation by Rob Melrose YSD '96
directed by Annie Elias

Sunday, April 7th, 5PM
Cutting Ball Theater
at The Exit on Taylor 
277 Taylor Street
San Francisco, CA
 
This tragic-farce follows an elderly couple who pass their time in an abandoned seaside building playing private games and telling each other half-remembered stories. Adrift in a world of their own, the Old Man resolves to convey his wisdom to a lifetime of friends, but while the Old Woman frantically sets out chairs, all of their invited guests appear to be imaginary. An eccentric meditation on the human condition, The Chairs humorously blurs the line between fantasy and hallucination, as the couple’s game becomes their reality. Directed by Annie Elias (Tenderloin), the new translation by Rob Melrose (Yale School of Drama '96) offers a fresh take on this absurdist masterpiece.
 
The SF Examiner says "Cutting Ball Theater’s current staging of mid-20th-century French playwright Eugène Ionesco’s The Chairs is probably one of the best theater of the absurd productions to be seen locally — ever."
