PRODUCTION NOTES

Chelsea Players premiered The Empty Chair as part of new writing showcase Virgin Territory: Three New Plays at London's Barons Court Theatre in March 2005. A revised cast, together with original director Rachel Goldsmith, take a revised version of the script to Edinburgh.

The Empty Chair begins mid-way through a therapy session. There are eight chairs, seven are occupied. The group are seated, only Celia is missing.

Therapist Zoe and the group members have many issues with their outside relationships - these resonate within the group's relationships.

Tension mounts and tempers frey as they focus on the missing Celia, and who or what she represents to them.

Characters in The Empty Chair are not based on any person alive or deceased.
