There’s no escaping the pithy material in the Port Angeles Community Playhouse’s interpretation of Jean Paul Sartre’s “No Exit.” Director John Manno leads Sean Peck-Collier, playing Joseph Garcin, Julie Belling (Estelle Rigault) and Lola Hassan-Adams (Inés Serrano) into hell as the trio is trapped together for eternity in a small room. Here they must confront their past lives’ sins and each others’. The play also features Stephanie Gooch and  music by Neil Paynter.

 

Performances run Dec. 14-16, with show times at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday and at 2 p.m. Sunday at the playhouse, 1203 S. Laurel St. The one-act play is free, with donations accepted.

 

Manno said Sartre uses the characters’ struggles and turmoil as a metaphor for his own philosophies and how everyone must be authentic in order to truly live.

 

“An intense and powerful drama, its message is a fitting one for the Christmas season, urging us all to be honest and true to who we are,” he said.
