Chamber Music is an absurdist black comedy set in the year 1939. We join the Sixth Annual Meeting of the Duly-Elected Grievance and Someday Governing Committee of Wing Five, Women's Section.
And there is much to discuss.
Poor Amelia Earhart, she just wants to go home, captured and left to rot in the asylum with all the other members of the committee, who unlike Amelia (?) all suffer from delusions of grandeur believing they are famous women from across the centuries. Susan B. Anthony doesn't want to hear it, Joan of Arc's pants keep rusting,and Isabella of Spain just can't figure out what to do about Columbus.
While these are all compelling issues. the important topic of discussion is what to do about the threat from the men's ward.
