Six years ago, a 10-year-old boy accidentally shot and killed his little brother. Now, a court-appointed social worker has come for a home visit to determine if the boy should be let off parole early. With One In The Chamber, Ovation Award-nominated playwright (Dysnomia) and HBO Audience Award-winning screenwriter (The Four-Faced Liar) Marja-Lewis Ryan crafts a timely drama about family dysfunction and the effects of gun violence in America. With thematic echoes of Ordinary People and Who's Afraid of Virginia Wolf?, One In The Chamber goes right to the heart of a national crisis as seen through its day-to-day impact. Learn More

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.
