ABOUT THE PLAY:

No Exit is the English translated Huis Clos by Jean Paul Sartre, a leading existential philosopher of the 20th century. No Exit is considered to be Sartre’s most influential artistic existential achievement. Following their arrivals to Hell, three people, quite confident in the way they lived their lives, try to determine why they could possibly be in such a place. Only through reflection and dealings with their counter-parts do they discover a crawling, unnerving, and eternal truth.
