FROM THE COMPOSER

Three self-absorbed people who don’t know each other and don’t like each other trapped together in one room for eternity – literally. Perhaps not most people’s idea of a naturally operatic plot, but Sartre’s play is full of drama and sly comedy set in a tiny space packed with vast consequences. NO EXIT shows the first hour of their damnation; we see the veneer of civilized self-justification crack to reveal fear, spite, vanity, self-delusion. Imagine this same room in ten thousand years, twenty thousand, thirty thousand . . .
