Where: Barrow Civic Theatre, 1223 Liberty St, Franklin, PA
Details:
“No Exit” is a darkly captivating play written by French existentialist, Jean-Paul Sartre, in 1944. In a depiction of the afterlife, three deceased characters are punished by being locked into a room together for eternity. It is the source of Sartre’s especially famous and often misinterpreted quotation “L’enfer, c’est les autres” or “Hell is other people”, a reference to Sartre’s ideas about the look and the perpetual ontological struggle of being caused to see oneself as an object from the view of another consciousness. This show contains adult language and situations.
