Existentialism in the Theatre

December 2012

Kristen Jett '13, student-director for the Spring semester studio show at St. Ambrose University, describes "No Exit" by Jean-Paul Sartre (Nausea, The Roads to Freedom) as "a play in which the characters find themselves in a very different kind of hell. Eventually, they conclude that instead of the traditional idea of torture, each of them will torture the other two."

Jett said she was drawn to this show because she has "always been interested in existentialism." Even though auditions won't happen until February, Jett has already begun script analysis and to assemble her design team.

Auditions will take place on February 4 and 5 from 4-6 p.m. Actors should come prepared with a 60-90 second monologue in the style of whichever character for which they are auditioning. Additionally, Jett said, "As always, I am looking for a deep understanding of the play and insight into the character the actor is interested in."

"No Exit" will be presented March 21 and 22 at 7:30 p.m. and March 23 at 3 the Studio Theatre of the Galvin Fine Arts Building at St. Ambrose University.
