    In 1944 Sartre created Hell. Hell, not of red hot pokers and lakes of sulpur, rather three people whose desires and needs continually torture each other. Better a hundred gashes, better the whips, the vitriol, than this phantom sufferinthat grazes and carresses and never hurts enough."

    Jean-Paul Sartre wrote this play to illustrate his existentialist philosophy; people's desperation to define themselves through others. Everything is perfectly crafted to tie the three main characters into a relentless vicious circle.

    Written towards the end of Nazi occupation in France, this play iunderstood as a work of protest. but more than that, it symbolizes the sense of captivity and despair that was only just beginning to lift in Europe.

    This period production creates a web of tension so dense it's almost palpable. It will leave you dying for a resolution.
