Original Title'The Wednesday Play' - aka No Exit (Huis Clos)
- Director: Philip Saville
- Writer: Stuart Gilbert; Jean-Paul Sartre
- Producer: Peter Luke
Hell is other people...especially these people!
A ridiculous name change for Satre's mind-f**k...and, a wholly tortuous production.
Yes, compliments will fly...because: A Pinter performance, a lesbian!!!
But - in truth - it's a hideously translated, monstrously acted piece of directorial garbage.
Satre was right, to paraphrase - Hell is...plummy English actors in a room with bad art.
Three people, a man convicted of cowardice, a Lesbian and a self obsessed Blonde are put in a small, stark room with a few garish modern artworks and three benches. All have died and are in Hell, but instead of devils, fire, brimstone and physical torture, they spend eternity there with each other's loathsome company.
