No Exit

Directed by Steve Bologna

March 20 to April 5, 2020

The 5th production of the 2019-2020 Season

In light of the evolving global COVID-19 pandemic and out of an abundance of caution for our performers and patrons, it is with heavy hearts that Pacifica Spindrift Players has decided to indefinitely postpone its upcoming production of Jean Paul Sartre’s classic existential play “No Exit,” which had been scheduled to open this coming Friday, March 20. Our hope is to reschedule these performances to sometime later this year.

If you’ve already purchased tickets to “No Exit,” please reach out to our box office to discuss exchanging your tickets for any other production of the upcoming season.

If you’d like to donate the price of your ticket to PSP as we – along with the entire theatre community – struggle during this unprecedented time, please know that your generosity is enormously appreciated, and will go toward supporting and compensating the artists who have spent the past several months pouring their hearts and souls into this incredible show.

 

Written by: Jean-Paul Sartre
Adapted from the French by: Paul Bowles

Two women and one man are locked up together for eternity in one room in Hell. The windows are bricked up, there are no mirrors, the electric lights can never be turned off, and there is no exit.

In No Exit, Sartre’s classic existentialist dramatic comedy, three damned souls, Garcin, Inez, and Estelle, are brought to the same room in Hell by a mysterious Valet. They had all expected medieval torture devices to punish them for eternity, but instead find a plain room furnished in Second Empire style. None of them will admit the reason for their damnation, but all is revealed over the course of the play as the trio slowly realizes that “Hell is other people.”

Performances: TBD
