Description

University of Minnesota, Morris production of No Exit by Jean-Paul Sartre and directed by Kelly L. Classen.

Synopsis: Sarte’s famous existentialist play follows three people to a room in hell, where their torture is revealed to be each other’s company. Three damned souls, Garcin, Inez, and Estelle, are brought to a lavish room to await their punishment. While they expected some sort of torture chamber to punish them in the afterlife, they instead begin to realize where the true torment really lies. Their constant arguing finally has Garcin state the famous line: “Hell is other people”. An exploration of human nature and relationships, No Exit is a play brimming with sardonic wit. You’ll laugh. You’ll ponder life’s meaning. You’ll have a devilishly good time.
