19:30, Wed 14th – Fri 16th February 2007 at Graham Storey Room, Trinity Hall
Lent Week 4
Trinity Hall’s Preston Society presents…
NO EXIT By Jean- Paul Sartre Translated by Stuart Gilbert.
Jean-Paul Sartre’s haunting play, ‘No Exit’, brings three people into a room, where they will live together. Forever. They will never sleep. They will never leave. They will never die. Slowly, insidiously they realise that the fire and brimstone of their childhood Sunday Schools are not through the next door; there is no blistered demon with red-hot poker coming to tax their physical stamina; they are there to torture one another. Each mind becomes more dangerous and explosive than any Medieval Christian fairytale. They love and hate and desire and disgust and fight defiantly and concede quickly and, finally, come to realisation that “Hell is… other people”. The Preston Society goes in a new direction to explore the historic surroundings we are privileged to have in Cambridge, performing this powerful play in the awe-inspiring setting of the Graham Storey Room. Complete with bar and cabaret style seating. You are cordially invited.
Venue: The Graham Storey Room, Trinity Hall. Dates: 14th, 15th, 16th February 2007 Time: Arrive at 7:30p.m. for drinks. Performance starts at 8p.m. No admittance after 7:50p.m.
