No Exit

No Exit

I went and saw Jean-Paul Sartre’s existential philosophical play ‘No Exit’ at Imago Theatre.  It was really, really great.

It is a play about 3 people who are in hell; and hell consists of a room on a tilting floor.  A 17′ stage floor is suspended at one central point.  When one actor moves, the whole set tips and the other players must counteract that move to keep the floor balanced.  It’s so very cleaver a play because there is great dialog, but there is just as much communication going on through the fact actors moving around raise each other up, balance each other, or sink depending on how they are in relation to each other on the floor.  It’s only open until this weekend, but I would highly recommend it.
