What does the Future have in store for us?  What will the Future be like? Will it be a Star Trek Future? Will it be a dystopian Blade Runner Future?  Or will it be something else completely? 

Edward Bond’s CHAIR is a trip to an apocalyptic future; one where family means nothing and people are divested of their humanity.  It is a future where humanity becomes a product and life becomes a new version of Auschwitz. And what difference can a chair make in such a Future?

Alice takes care of Billie, a young girl in her early twenties who is autistic and has ADHD.  Billie loves drawing and loves to show Alice whatever she draws.  However, Alice is intent on keeping Billie a secret lest the State takes her away from her.  Then, one day, a blast from Alice’s past hits the two women.  Alice notices a young soldier outside their flat accompanying an elderly prisoner.  Alice takes pity on the prisoner and decides to offer her a chair.

It is a decision that changes their lives altogether.  A decision that brings the State into their lives.
