Isolation and Beyond in Sartre’s “No Exit” by Stetson University Theater Arts
Stetson University Theater Arts presents Jean-Paul Sartre’s play “No Exit,” a one-act philosophical drama that examines morality, identity and human relationships. Directed by Shay Figueroa, senior of Stetson Theater Arts, the production will take place November 18-21 at the Second Stage Theater in Stetson at the Museum of Art – DeLand.
The production features Joseph Garcin, Inéz Serrano and Estelle Rigault hanging out in a simple and mysterious play that depicts the afterlife. The trio get to know each other and learn why they are in a room together.
“The play touches on illusion and self-realization as the characters slowly drive themselves crazy,” said Figueroa, who is making her directorial debut. “It was interesting to break down the essence of the characters through their words and actions. I think audiences will be drawn in and think about how, in a much softer sense, he might relate to one or more of the characters in the production. “
“Stetson’s theater arts students are starting to get back into the mix after not having had the opportunity to participate in traditional theater for almost two years,” Figueroa added. “It was an honor and exciting to have this chance to work with my classmates in this collaborative production.”
