Neil Simon’s Tony and Pulitzer Prize-winning play is set in Yonkers, New York in 1942. This memory play centers around two brothers, Arty and Jay, who have been deposited in their grandmother’s home while their father travels desperately trying to scrape enough money together to pay off his debts. The boys are left to contend with Grandma, with their mentally challenged Aunt Bella and her secret romance, and with Louie, her brother, a small-time hoodlum in a strange new world called Yonkers. Over the course of the play, the young boys learn lessons about love, respect, and the importance of family that will carry them into adulthood.

No Exit, Jean-Paul Sartre’s classic existential one act, takes place entirely in Hell. This Hell is not, however, the classic depiction of torture racks and brimstone. This Hell is more of a personal nature, the burning humiliation of an individual soul as it is slowly stripped of its secrecy by the cruel curiosity of its companions. For our purposes, Hell is other people.
