In March/April 2002, Cesear’s Forum presented Eugene Ionesco’s absurdist THE CHAIRS.
What could these apparently vacant chairs possibly symbolize?
The play, written in 1952, was a fifty year production revival, but the year 2019-20 and the word COVID further the relevance of such a work. As we look ahead to 2021, we share the humanity of our community and the opportunity to present new productions.
Meanwhile, we honor the memory of our two characters, known only as the “Old Man and Old Woman” in the aforementioned play, but known to our audiences as Glenn & Jean Colerider; who pondered mortality on our stage, with verve!
Cesear’s Forum is dedicated to presenting unconventional, new or lesser known plays that explore theory and technique to reveal aspects of the social, political, economic and ideological properties of daily life. The company produces intermittently, on a project by project basis (unusual in Cleveland), currently, one play per year, rather than a traditional seasonal approach.
Intimate, minimalist, professional and distinctly non-commercial, the company operates from a truly non-profit perspective.
"Sometimes words, by themselves or in recurrent patterns, will blaze up in fiery exchanges or subside in aching whispers; sometimes a grimace, a tear, the movement of a hand, or a break in speech will hint better than spoken language what passes show.” --Marvin Rosenberg
