CORONAVIRUS: currently, all theatres and related venues are closed. Shows are either being cancelled, postponed or rescheduled and we are trying to keep up with all the changes. There are currently few changes after May 2020 and many shows that were due for April have been pushed back towards the end of Autumn. Pantomimes are looking like a safe bet at the moment ;-)

T468304778 This black comedy is set in a vaudevillian underworld. Garcin, Inez and Estelle are trapped together for eternity as penance for their corrupt lives. Through probing investigation of each others' actions, and attacks on each others' characters and continuous treadmill of sexual exploitation, they finally come to realise that the traditional hell they had so feared would have been infinitely preferable to this eternity of each other. As Garcin observes 'no need for the rack... Hell is other people.' Huis Clos was written in 1943 and is one of Sarte's most influential plays.
