NO EXIT

Genre: Drama
Written by Jean-Paul Sartre, Adapted by Paul Bowles, Directed by Mino Lora

Imagine being trapped in a small room with two questionable strangers. Forever.

People's Theatre Project presents No Exit, a fast-paced, frightening, and darkly funny cautionary tale of three poor souls who made some bold choices in life. This odd threesome quickly assumes they are in Hell, but are they? Have the choices we made in the past somehow sealed our eternal fate, or can we take action now and control our own destiny? NO EXIT encourages us to consider the choices we make and what might happen if we don’t.
