We all know how mother and daughter relationship can be. They can be super beautiful or they can be tested. Most of us know what it’s like to have the dynamic tested. It’s almost at points of reteaching yourself when you have your own daughter. 12 Chairs by John O’Hara and directed by Carly L. Bodnar tugged on the heartstrings….
12 Chairs takes you through life with all of its highs and lows and what relationships mean. What sticks to you at the end of the day. Without giving you too much detail each chair represents different aspects of life. Each aspect has a lesson that builds upon themselves even when you’re paying attention. That’s how life works too. As you move through life thinking it just happens, if you’re not careful those closest to you hold invaluable lessons that you must listen in to push through! 12 Chairs is illustrated by Marcia Ferguson and Amanda Schoonover. They switch between parts fluidity. Both actresses are able to build upon one another in the most beautiful, painful, troubled, and empathic way. All of the emotions in each scene was powerful and thoughtful.
12 Chairs will make you reflect on your own journey. It forces you to ask intimate questions about those who revolve around you. Are you too busy? Too occupied? Too self consumed?
