Warm up from the winter chill by spending an evening in Hell, courtesy of Jean-Paul Sartre's NO EXIT, March 14-23 at the Bard's Town.

Sartre’s 1944 existential masterpiece lets the audience engage in some Hellish voyeurism by spying on a trio of the damned. The three characters are in the process of facing who they ended up being. They are punished by being locked into a room together for eternity. There are no mirrors in the room because these three are reflections of each other's darkest secrets. And because they see each other so clearly, their self-inflicted pain is constant. By serving as mirrors for each other, they also serve as unrelenting torturers.

In Sartre's view, the decisions we make in life are recorded and stored behind the closed doors of our social veneer. Our character comprises myriad choices between good and evil made during our lifetime. In the last analysis, who we are is the sum total of all of our actions, as determined by our own free will.

This powerful one-act play makes clear that Hell is not the bother of other people; it is other people who see us as we really are.
