No Exit 
by Jean-Paul Sartre
Directed by Brian Finney
Krapp’s Last Tape 
by Samuel Beckett
Directed by Cynthia Ettinger

NO EXIT

Three sinners expecting hell, fire and damnation find themselves in a room together. Forever. Left to contemplate their sins, they eventually realize that hell is “other people”. Originally performed in Nazi-occupied Paris, in 1944, Jean-Paul Sartre wrote this Nobel Prize-winning play as a one-act to ensure that theater patrons made it home before curfew.

KRAPP’S LAST TAPE

Krapp is sitting alone in his room late at night. It’s his 69th birthday and he is preparing to record his memories of the past year, an old birthday habit of his, to ‘separate the past year’s ‘grain from the husks’. He listens to a tape of his 39-year-old self and hears the voice of a confident, optimistic man in the prime of his life. He hardly recognizes himself and laughs ironically at his past ambitions and dreams. Krapp remembers a woman, who could have been the last great love of his life.
