No Exit

by Jean-Paul Sartre (Adapted from the French by Paul Bowles)

No Exit

No Exit is a classic French play by Jean-Paul Sartre, exploring a version of hell where torture comes in the form of being stuck in a room for all eternity with people you don’t really get along with. Three strangers find themselves trapped together in the afterlife: Cradeau, a cowardly reporter; Estelle, a frivolous wealthy woman; and Inez, a cynical secretary. While they try to understand their situation, they drive each other increasingly insane. 

Spending a year without much social interaction at all has left this play’s premise seeming pretty ridiculous. We’re going to use the absurdity of this play and its characters to poke fun at Sartre’s cynicism.
