The Uneasy Chair
A fatefully misunderstood proposal lands a miserly, spinster, boarding house owner and her cantankerous, perennial bachelor tenant in court, where stubborn resolves leaves them both serving a life sentence- married to each other!
Set in 19th century London, this battle for truth, justice, and the Victorian way offers a unique look at how fate and circumstance create the most unexpected relationships. An uproarious, fast paced comedy.

Mr. Smith provides scintillating imitations of period circumlocutions and Wildean epigrams.—New York Times
In The Uneasy Chair, Evan Smith has created a bewitching little comedy of Victorian manners. Smith manages to convert a ridiculous situation into pure comedy made entrancing by its unerringly satirical command of the pompous lifestyle of middle-class Victorians.—New York Post
