THE ORIGINAL NO EXIT
The original play was written in French in 1944 by the Nobel-Laureate French author Jean-Paul Sartre. It was premiered in Théâtre du Vieux-Colombier in May 1944.
The original play has not been translated, rather the structure of the play has been taken. The sequences, dialogues and characters have been newly created to make them fit in the curves of acceptance of the spectators in the main field of its performance.
The performance of this play comes not to be of the one written by Sartre. But, what is performed cannot be called other than "No Exit".
