A short play about the surreal nature of modern life.

A play that is at once modern and postmodern, tragedy and farce, about all and about nothing.

Caryl Churchill's This is a Chair was first performed at the Royal Court Theatre at the Duke of York’s, London, on 25 June 1997 as part of the London International Festival of Theatre.


"Churchill, who constantly reinvents dramatic form, has come up with something compelling and strange: an intimate revue about the increasing surreality of modern life. "

- Guardian

"Creates a haunting impression of urban alienation, self-obsession and pre-millennial tension. "

- Daily Telegraph
