|The Guy Chair by
We visit the world of "the guy chairs": those areas in the shopping malls made up of chairs in various formations for men to sit in while their significant others are shopping forever and ever. In this world. The men dont just sit in the chairs, they become the chairs themselves! The only escape from their "mall incarceration" is to be sat on and subsequently replaced by another guy. A comedic and sympathetic piece for every man who has ever had to wait for his shopper in the mall. The diversity of the stereotypes in this piece makes it entertaining for both the performers and the audience. With no set and minimal staging (the four characters dont move throughout the play), The Guy Chair is a fun addition to any evening of one-acts.Author Biography
