No Exit
June 22, 2006 through July 9, 2006

No Exit revolves around three recently deceased strangers who find themselves locked in a drawing room. All have led extravagant, quasi-criminal lives: Estelle is a nymphomaniac who drove her lover to suicide when she killed their illegitimate child; Inez is a lesbian who drove her cousin's wife to suicide; Garcin is a militant pacifist who betrayed his own cause and was shot while attempting to escape. Now all three are trapped together for eternity, prisoners in an endless love triangle that forms their own private hell. Jean-Paul Sartre's classic thriller is part philosophical melodrama, part farce; Jerry Mouawad's stylish production sets the stage in a maddeningly unstable world—where the three inmates must literally fight to retain their footing with every step.

No Exit was previously performed January 7-29, 2006 at the Loeb Drama Center with lighting design by Jeff Forbes. An earlier version of this production was produced at Imago Theatre in 1998 under the artistic direction of Carol Triffle and Jerry Mouawad.
