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

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.
