MARTIN METHODIST PRESENTS DRAMATIC 1944 FRENCH PLAY
February 15, 2019
PULASKI, Tenn. – The Dramatic Arts Program at Martin Methodist College (MMC) will perform Jean-Paul Sartre’s French play No Exit. This production is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.
Written and performed in occupied France during World War II, No Exit is the story of three people—a man and two women—who find themselves in hell. Physically, hell is a hotel room where the lights are always on and no one ever sleeps. Philosophically, hell is, as one of the characters says, “other people.”
“No Exit is a brilliant existentialist drama that explores the cost and consequences of human actions and personal identity,” said director Dr. Kayla Wiggins.
The cast features Robert Austell as Cradeau, McKinley Heard as Inez, Sydney Gregory as Estelle, and David Lynch as the Bellboy. The stage managers are Fayth Dennis and Larissa Perdomo.
Performances are February 25, 26, and 27 in the Martin Hall Auditorium at 7:00 p.m. Admission is free to all MMC students and personnel. Otherwise, the admission fee is $5.00 for adults. The play contains strong language and adult themes and is not suitable for children.
Martin Methodist College, founded in 1870, is a private, liberal arts college affiliated with the United Methodist Church. Martin Methodist offers baccalaureate degrees in 39 programs of study that include English, religious studies, music and dramatic arts, mathematics and natural sciences to business, social sciences, education, criminal justice, and nursing.
