William Peace Theatre: NO EXIT
Leggett Theatre, Main Building
Thu Sep 26th, 2013 - Sat Sep 28th, 2013
07:30 p.m. - 09:30 p.m.
Play by Jean-Paul Sartre
William Peace Theatre is delighted to present No Exit, a play by Jean-Paul Sartre, directed by Jennifer Avery, Adjunct Instructor for Dance and William Peace Theatre Choreographer.
No Exit is about two women and one man who are locked up together for eternity in one hideous room in hell.
The windows are bricked up; there are no mirrors; the electric lights can never be turned off; and there is no exit.
The irony of this hell is that its torture is not of the rack and fire, but of the burning humiliation of each soul as it is stripped of its pretenses by the cruel curiosity of the damned. Here the soul is shorn of secrecy, and even the blackest deeds are mercilessly exposed to the fierce light of hell. It is an eternal torment.
Jean-Paul Sartre won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1964 “for his work, which, rich in ideas and filed with the spirit of freedom and the quest for truth, has exerted a far-reaching influence on our age.” Jean Paul Sartre declined the prize.
No Exit Is presented through special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.
The play runs Sept. 24-28 at 7:30 p.m. in Leggett Theatre, with a special Matinee performance on the 28th at 2:00 p.m.
Tickets: $18 Adults / $16 Senior Citizens / $16 Alumni / $16 Faculty & Staff / $5 Students / $5 Children
