No Exit

Time and Location

by Jean Paul Sartre

Adapted by Evan Mueller

"L'enfer, c'est les autres" ("Hell is other people") - Jean Paul Sartre

Three damned souls in the afterlife are escorted by a valet into a plain room, where they're locked in together. They soon realize they've been placed there to make each other miserable for eternity. Extravagant life stories, nefarious confessions, and a love triangle come out as the characters work out what to do in hell.

The play was widely praised as a "phenomenon of theatre" when it premiered in America as a Broadway production at the Biltmore Theatre in 1946. It has been adapted for audio and film productions, opera, and parodies. Show creator Michael Herbert Schur compared Sartre's play to The Good Place.
