'No Exit' at the Bard's Town
 
Warm up from the winter chill by spending an evening in Hell, courtesy of Jean-Paul Sartre's "No Exit," presented by the Louisville Repertory Company. 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.
