ADD: Les Chaises, Eugene Ionesco's absurd French play about an elderly couple isolated in a house on an island, will be presented in French by the Paris-based theater group, La Compagnie Claude Beauclair. The main characters, attempting to justify a long tradition of failure and humiliation, organize a large reception and invite many imaginary guests--this elderly couple is perhaps not any more real that the imaginary guests they invite.
