Glimpse into eternity when Uncovered Theatre, the professional theatre company for Rochester College, presents “No Exit,” written by Jean-Paul Sartre and directed by Nicole Mullaly. Performances are Thursday, Jan. 11 through Sunday, Jan. 14 on the campus of Rochester College in Rochester Hills.
In the drama, two women and one man are locked up together for eternity in one hideous 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. The irony of this hell is that its torture is not of the rack and fire, but of the burning humiliation of each soul as it is stripped of its pretenses by the cruel curiosity of the damned. Here the soul is shorn of secrecy, and even the blackest deeds are mercilessly exposed to the fierce light of hell. It is an eternal torment.
Evening performances of “No Exit” will be Thursday–Saturday, Jan. 11-13 at 7:30 p.m. with a matinee performance on Sunday, Jan. 14 at 2 p.m.
All productions take place on the campus of Rochester College at 800 W. Avon Road, Rochester Hills, MI 48307.
Tickets are $5 for students and $12 in advance ($15 at the door). Click here for reservations online.
