Have you ever been to hell?

No?

Well, I have.


Imagine a room with soft yellow light, a few chairs, a warm temperature, and a vintage smell.

Does this remind you of some hotel’s lounge, or maybe the guest room at your grandma’s? Or, maybe this is where the most dramatic and traumatizing event any living soul could ever imagine takes place: the eternal torture of that once living soul after death.

In No Exit, three people got stuck together in this ordinary looking room. Despite each of their own dirty secrets, they all share the same urge of needing the others to define themselves. They went through the recurring series of internal and external struggles and on-going conflicts among themselves.


Hard to picture?

Then try this. Imagine it is the same room, but you have to be there with your least favorite people, forever. Imagine you can never turn off the light, plus there is no bed, no window, and NO EXIT.

And worse, you are even deprived of the most basic necessities, like, a tooth brush.

But maybe it is not so bad. Why in hell would you want to brush your teeth anyways?

Come. I invite you into my room.
