The Red Chair at Soho Theatre Upstairs from 24 Feb 2015
Clod Ensemble in association with Fuel present a brand new show, The Red Chair, written and performed by Sarah Cameron, at Soho Theatre Upstairs in central London, from 24 February to 1 March 2015, as part of a national tour.
The production is directed by Suzy Willson, has set design by Sarah Blenkinsop and lighting by Hansjorg Schmidt.
Synopsis: "The story of a father who eats and eats until he turns into the chair he is sitting upon, the wife doomed to cook his meals and their 'inveesible' daughter. The Red Chair takes audiences on a journey through a landscape of twisted reason, extreme compulsion and eye watering complacency, where domestic drudgery happens on an operatic scale and a father’s dereliction of duty reaches epic proportions."
Sarah Cameron, who was born in Dundee, is an artist, performer and writer. She has previously worked with the Royal Shakespeare Company, West Yorkshire Playhouse and the Young Vic.
Suzy Willson said “Sarah has worked with Clod Ensemble as a performer for many years. When she showed us the book she had been working on called The Red Chair we were blown away both by the quality of the language and by the power of the central image of a father who turns into the chair he is sitting upon. It is both mythic and contemporary, funny and heartfelt.”
