The Delgado Community College Theatre Program announces their latest production, No Exit, by Jean-Paul Sartre.
No Exit is directed by Jason Kirkpatrick. The play will be performed by students from the Delgado Theatre Program.
In No Exit, two women and one man are locked up together for perpetuity in a bleak room in hell. The windows are bricked up, there are no mirrors, the lights can’t be turned off and there is, of course, no exit. Sartre’s existential comedy produces both laughter and tears, often in that order, as the perception of hell being a place of eternal torture and fiery terror gives way to a much more disturbing image: the horror of simply having to spend eternity with “other people.”
The production staff includes: scene design by James Means, lighting and sound design by Tom Dawson and costume design by Jerry L. Johnson.
The play opens Tuesday, Feb. 23, 2016 at the Delgado Drama Hall, 615 City Park Ave. (3rd Floor), City Park Campus. The production will run one week only: Tuesday, Feb. 23 through Sunday, Feb. 28. Curtain times for Tuesday-Saturday performances are at 8 p.m. and the Sunday matinee on Feb. 28 is at 3 p.m. (closing performance).
Tickets are $10 general admission, $8 Delgado students, faculty and staff. For reservations and/or additional information, call 504-671-6360.
