Frank Houser’s adaptation of Jean-Paul Sartre’s classic play Huis Clos attracted a stellar cast. Three totally incompatible people locked in a room torment each other about their pasts, and gradually come to realise that they’re dead and condemned to spend eternity in each other’s company. Sartre’s clever conceit gives perfect dramatic expression to the terrible notion that ‘hell is other people’. We offer a rare opportunity to see these legendary stars in such complex and compelling roles.
