Huis Clos
    By Jean-Paul Sartre

    22:30, Wed 25th – Sat 28th February 2004 at Corpus Playroom
    Lent Week 6

    Sartre's intense vision of hell: no fire, no demons no torture devises. Hell is...other people. Three people meet in hell. Initially they try to hide from each other what brought them there. But they cannot live together without penetrating each others' intimate spheres, without forcing each other to confess who they had been and what they had done. No one is allowed to keep his secret and no one is spared the humiliation of being recognised for who he is. And yet: the more they are being hurt and the more their lives become hell, the more they become bound to each other. The play thrives on the dense, claustrophobic and yet erotic tension between the characters. We will try to portray their anguish, violence and passion in a way that evokes the audience's passions as well as captivating their intellect.
