Senior Kristen Jett and her cast had a great run with the existential classic play "No Exit" by Jean-Paul Sartre in the studio theatre.
Each night they had a great audience and some wonderful talkback sessions after the show.
"I couldn't have asked or hoped for more," student-director Jett said. The whole cast said they had a great time and really enjoyed the show. This show was a little different, in that before the show's opening night, an interdisciplinary committee held a pre-show talk. The talk really helped audience members to know the context and politics that were happening at the time the play was written.
Every night after the talkback Jett was approached by at least one audience member who commented that they could not believe all of the actors were freshmen. "They [the cast] brought such a sense of maturity to their characters and each was phenomenal," one audience member said. Jett commented how proud her cast and designers made her and would happily do it again.
"This has been my favorite theatre experience to date, and a wonderful way to keep me focused during the last semester of my senior year here at SAU. Of course, I would definitely do it again!"
