The Four Chairs

Set in the Victorian era, The Four Chairs is a story about a family and four black and white mismatched chairs. The chairs act as a metaphor for the family’s interconnected and fragile lives. Each chair represents a character. The chairs embody traits which suit and shape the characters’ lives. Ultimately when some of the chairs topple over so do their occupants.
