“No Exit” by Dark Horse Theatre Company
6507 Main Street, The Plains | 2:30 and 7:30pm

The DC critics call it: “One hell of a play”, “impeccably cast and staged”, and “small but mighty”. Get ready for this contemporary existentialist masterpiece, with some Dark Horse surprises. Hell is other people. The play begins with three characters who find themselves waiting in a mysterious room. It is hell and these characters are punished by being locked into a room together for eternity. Dark and often comedic, this play examines the human condition under such circumstances. Dark Horse boldly asks “Who is pulling the strings?”

The play features intimate seating in the round. Limited engagement and seating. Tickets at the door and online.
