A rare opportunity to see Huis Clos, Jean Paul Sartre’s brilliant existentialist masterpiece written in 1944.
One room, no windows, and a locked door. There’s no way out for three people left alone to share their memories together.
Fear of what lies beyond the door turns talk of their earthly transgressions into a meditation on the afterlife and a realisation that they are torturing each other in a living hell.
Huis Clos is staged as part of the Donmar Trafalgar season, showcasing the work of directors who were part of the Donmar Warehouse’s Resident Assistant Directors scheme.
