UNDERGROUND AT THE ANNEX IS NOW AT
THE ARTS COUNCIL OF SOUTHWESTERN INDIANA!

CIVIC THEATRE UNDERGROUND PRESENTS JEAN PAUL SARTRE’S “NO EXIT” AT ARTS COUNCIL
 
 
Evansville Civic Theatre will present “No Exit” at the Arts Council of Southwestern Indiana, in its third production in the 2014/2015 Underground Series.
 
“No Exit,” written by Jean Paul Sartre, gives a unique portrayal of the afterlife where “hell is other people.” Three strangers are locked together in a room in hell where they believe they will await their eternal punishment. They soon figure out that hell is much more calculating and has put them together to serve as each other’s tormenters. The show will be performed in the round to give audiences a complete view of the “room” as all the drama plays out.
 
The show will feature new and returning actors with Civic Theatre, with Jim Hunter, Heather Burton, and Andrea Hulsey playing the three strangers and Gennie Adams playing the part of “bellhop” who ushers them all in the room and locks them together forever. The show will be directed by Civic Theatre regular Matt Hummel.
 
Hummel performed as the “bellhop” as part of a senior classmate’s directing class in the theater program at the University of Evansville. “That was seven years ago, and I’ve wanted to do a full production of ‘No Exit’ ever since,” says Hummel. “I can’t wait to see the gallery at the Arts Council transform for this production.”
 
“No Exit” will play at the Arts Council, located at 318 Main St in downtown Evansville, February 19, 20, 21 at 7:30 PM and Sunday February 22 at 2:00 PM. Tickets can be purchased in advance by calling Evansville Civic Theatre at 812-425-2800 or visiting http://www.evansvillecivictheatre.org.

 

 

About The Underground at the Annex Shows

Since opening as a black box theatre in 2007, The Evansville Civic Theatre Annex has been home to numerous plays and musicals that audience members wouldn't normally see on the Civic Theatre's Mainstage. Annex shows often contain adult material that some may find offensive or controversial, but are meant to explore a part of theatre that is both thought provoking and challenging. If you have any questions regarding the nature of a show, please feel free to contact us at (812) 425-2800.

Underground shows are $10 for general admission tickets and can be purchased online or by calling the Evansville Civic Theatre's Box Office during regular business hours.
