'I am nothing. Nobody. One day I could forget what I have done. Then I am nothing with no past. My knife is to tell me who I am. It is my passport to myself.' The Chair Plays are three one-act plays that Edward Bond has combined into one continuous drama on the state of society towards the end of the present century. Faced with ecological disaster and economic chaos, governments have become authoritarian and repressive. Domestic family life struggles to survive in a world of fleeing refugees, mass suicides, ruined and deserted suburbs, and soldiers patrolling the streets. Authority decrees even the exact placing of furniture in rooms. There is a knock at the door - but it is not the secret police. It is something even more disturbing. In this broken world sheer human goodness and vision asserts itself in stubborn and radiant ways. A master dramatist creates a range of extraordinary characters, vivid situations and radical theatrical devices to stage the central problem of modern life.

During the windstorm of the century, ten-year-old Lucy and her fourteen-year-old sister, Terroba, find themselves marooned alone in Gramma's old house. With the phones dead, the electricity out, and Mom nowhere in sight, Lucy must deal with a chair with a mind of its own and a dead gramma who won't stay in her portrait. Her night of imagination and adventure leaves Lucy with a new ability to face her fears and embrace the love that is all around her. Commissioned and produced by the Seattle Children's Theatre, this play "...focuses on everyday matters that many preteen children face... Things like trying to get along with your older/younger sibling, even when they're driving you nuts. Trying to be brave even when you don't feel brave. Learning to accept the illness and death of a loved one. And using fantasy as both an escape and a route to self-discovery."--Back cover.

"Edward Bond is the most radical playwright to emerge from the sixties ... the most savagely powerful dramatist writing today ... Bond's plays cannot be ignored" (Independent) Saved - "The most uncompromising, original and un-English English play of the sixties" (Observer); Early Morning - "A gargantuan Swiftian metaphor of universal consumption" (Observer); The Pope's Wedding - "This bizarre and unclassifiable piece is an astonishing tour de force for a first play, and if it comes to that, would be an astonishing tour de force if it were a fifty-first ... Bond is an original" (Bernard Levin, Daily Mail)
