An African-American attorney with a successful career discovers she has an Iraqi half-sister she never knew about in award-winning playwright Wendy Graf's latest work. This hard-hitting drama about family conflict and clashing cultures stars L.A Weekly and NAACP Award-winner Diarra Kilpatrick as up-and-coming corporate attorney Julie Dolan, whose carefully constructed life begins to crumble when she meets her half-sister Neyla. Neyla, a violinist, has fled Iraq to audition for Julliard, but Julie suspects there is more to her story. Graf's fresh spin on racial relations gives each of its characters their own voice and point of view as they navigate in a world that has become interconnected and multicultural on every level.

No Exit at the Lounge is exceptionally good theater and riveting experience. The stylized approach taken gives a fresh perspective to a play that words are as relevent as it was when it opened in 1944. I found all elements of the production excellent.
With the service of a mysterious Valet, one by one, each is led into a simply set room, awaiting the fury and wrath of Hell. As each character evaluates the way they led their lives on earth, the trio slowly comes to grasp that each is the other’s eternal torturer. When triangular relationships develop, they struggle to acquire something from another that cannot – or will not – be surrendered. Thus, all three are doomed to a perpetual stalemate of torture and the ultimate realization that “Hell is just other people.” The fantastical costume and make-up designs strongly contrast the refined dialogue and setting but are united through unconventional movement and music. Two women. One man. No exit.
