The Chair, written and performed by Alex Garza. In a world where so many have lost the power to believe and in a time where nothing is left to the imagination anymore, one man dares to journey through an uncharted course of thought, emotion, and adventure. He embarks upon an odyssey from which he may never return. With great courage and with tremendous hesitation, he takes on his greatest adversary . . . the chair. Just a plain, ordinary chair.
