"NO EXIT" in the Windows

No Exit runs August 26th-30th in the “Fishtank Window Play” series at the Fishtank Theater


Hell is not what it’s supposed to be in Jean-Paul Sartre’s No Exit. When three recently deceased meet in the afterlife, fa├žade is roughly stripped away and the differences between what they want to believe and the harsh realities of their existence make eternal rest torturous: no matter how desperately you cling to illusions, the truth must be faced.

Adapted & performed by Anna Day, Marianne McKenzie, Charlie Weitcamp & Ethan Zogge. Directed by Ethan Zogge
Curated by Heidi Van & produced in partnership with the Umkc University Theatre Association.
