Druid

Furniture

By Sonya Kelly
Directed by Cathal Cleary
World Premiere

Furniture is not sentimental. You can love it, but it won’t remember who you are.

Three short plays about chairs and tables, and the people who love them.

Furniture is a playful new piece about perceptions and possessions. Told through the lives of six individuals, this fresh, new comedy looks at how the things we own shape our worldview and even ourselves.

Written by Sonya Kelly [The Wheelchair on My Face; How to Keep an Alien], Furniture is a new Irish play with a lot to say about who we think we are.

Furniture and Shelter are playing in repertory as part of Druid's season of new Irish work at GIAF 2018 featuring two world premieres and two Druid Debuts.
