Lonesome No More! Theatre presents Jean-Paul Sartre’s No Exit as their first work as Artists in Residence at Theatre Asylum Lab in Hollywood.
Moments after their respective deaths, three strangers find themselves locked up in a single room in Sartre’s No Exit, faced with a maddening new world in which they can cover their eyes but never sleep. They can go to the door, but they cannot open it. There are no torture instruments, but they torment one another and a lifetime of memories haunts them all. Director Lori Petermann presents Sartre’s truly dark and surprisingly funny play through a contemporary lens that projects three characters we recognize from our own present day: a cocky businessman, a self-made socialite, and a minimum wage member of the service industry. As the action examines the choices made by each that led them to No Exit, the true existential conundrum arises: how does an individual make the correct choices that leads them to a fulfilling life – and at what cost?
Lonesome No More! Theatre is a Los Angeles-based company of creative producers and performers known for highly energetic productions boldly staged to utilize the entire theatrical space. Founded in January 2011, the company began with an award-winning, sold-out production of Frank Wedekind’s Spring Awakening for the Hollywood Fringe Festival (June 2011), followed by Making Love Over There at Theatre Asylum (September 2011), and Woyzeck by Georg Büchner with Yeaheavy Projects in East Hollywood (November 2011).
