No Exit

May 2012

‘L’enfer, c’est les autres’ – the play that made Jean-Paul Sartre’s philosophy famous. Set in a windowless, inescapable room, three completely antithetical characters painfully discover that ‘hell is other people’.

Performed in the Taliesin Arts Centre as a one-act alongside Scary Play.

17th & 18th May 2012 (Taliesin Arts Centre)

Directed by Matt Ebbs and Fanny Messika.

Written by Jean-Paul Sartre in 1944, No Exit is the story of 3 people who find themselves in a room together in Hell. As they learn more about each other they realise that their punishment is not eternal fire, physical torture or any other physical torment associated with the idea of Hell. Instead, they must spend eternity with each other, realising that in fact “Hell is other people!”
