Show Description - This will be a French language production of Jean-Paul Sartre's classic one-act play, "Huis clos" (ie. "No Exit"). Written in 1944 during the German occupation of France, the play is set in Hell and explores various aspects of Sartre's philosophy of Existentialism, and in particular the struggle of being caused to see oneself as an object in the world of another consciousness. You will be able to attend a play in French with performers who are native or near-native speakers of the language without having to leave the country! You will be immersed in a claustrophobic, inescapable afterlife where "Hell is other people."
