From the darkness of an unlit stage, two strangers meet, each with a chair and what appears to be the same task to complete: place the chair, then leave. Their encounter disrupts their awareness of ‘self’ and ‘purpose’ and propels them headfirst into an exhilarating discourse of understandings and misunderstandings.

With masterful physicality and quick-witted wordplay, James & Jamesy conjure answers to the age-old questions ‘Who are we?’ and ‘Why are we here?’ The result is laugh-out-loud hilarious and surprisingly illuminating.
