The Highwood Theatre presents
Highwood’s first professional production of the 2014-2015 season
October 30, November 1, 7 & 8 at 7:30 pm; November 2 & 9 at 2:00 pm
at The Highwood Theatre in Downtown Silver Spring
Your Theatre, a division of The Highwood Theatre, presents the existential classic No Exit by JeanPaul Sartre, adapted from the original French by Paul Bowles and directed by Rachael Murray. This dark comedy examines the serious concepts of hell, identity and human interaction through a humorous lens.
No Exit follows three individuals, an unfaithful husband, a lesbian postal clerk, and a highclass murderess, as they arrive in Hell and must accept their fate: coexisting for eternity. Murray and her cast take a fresh look at Sarte’s claim, “Hell is just other people,” as they boldly explore the interactions between the characters and the power they hold over one another.
Produced by Kevin Kearney, Executive Director of The Highwood Theatre, No Exit features Matt Dundas (Cradeau), Tamara Breuer (Inez), Jennifer Berry (Estelle) and Vivian Allvin (Valet). The Set Designer is Highwood Resident Artist James Raymond; Tommy Peter is the Dramaturg and Stage Manager.
About The Highwood Theatre
The Highwood Theatre is a nonprofit organization dedicated to bringing the community together through theatre. Now in its 12th Season, Highwood’s guiding principle is “anyone can do theatre.” Highwood was founded in 2004 and began executing its mission through seasons of professional quality theatre featuring all student casts, design teams, and production staff. In 2013, in conjunction with its relocation to the heart of downtown Silver Spring, The Highwood Theatre expanded to more fully carry out its mission and develop innovative, engaging programming for artists of all ages through professional and student productions, classes, and programs in schools and for home schooled students.
The Highwood Theatre is creating a theatre hub in downtown Silver Spring made up of artists of all ages, regardless of past experience or training. Through productions and programs that combine both professional theatre artists and students along with opportunities for development and training in all aspects of theatre we hope to bring the community together and foster an environment where everyone feels comfortable, supported, and inspired to collaborate, share, appreciate, and create.

No Exit is part of Highwood’s 2014-2015 Mainstage Season and is the season’s first production by its Your Theatre division, which is dedicated to producing high quality professional theatre productions with mixed casts of talented adult and student actors.
