Hell will never look the same again!

An award-winning company of women brings Sartre's classic play to the San Francisco stage for a contemporary look at queerness, passivity, existentialism and what constitutes sin in the modern world. When a devilishly lukewarm Valet trios Estelle the classy socialite, Garcin the transgendered journalist/war deserter, and Inez the lesbian postal clerk, they discover the particular torture of spending eternity together. To hell with fire and brimstone! Damnation for these sinners is a locked door, three sofas, and a set of sharp tongues. When Sartre asks if Hell is, in fact, other people? This all-female production answers back with a Hell that would even shock and confuse Dante. Hell will never look the same again.

NO EXIT features five recent Stanford University graduates: Kendra Arimoto (Sudler Prize for Excellence in the Performing & Creative Arts and the Edoga Prize for Creative Work involving Social Issues, 2005); Alexis Boozer (Evelyn Draper Award for performance) and Lisa Rowland (Eleanor Prosser Award for Performance, 2004/2005); Chantel Benson (program assistant for the Commonwealth Club and Founder/Producer/Artistic Director of V-Day Mid-Peninsula); and NO EXIT director Bekah McNeil, an emerging queer playwright/director, winner of the Douglas Russell Award for Design and author of the original play What Would Jesus Do? (recent debut directed by nationally renowned playwright Cherre Moraga).
