Witness the genesis of Sartre’s most well-known quote, “Hell is other people.” Two women and one man are locked together in a room. The windows are bricked up; there are no mirrors; the electric lights can never be turned off; and did we mention it’s hot? Oh so hot. Confessions, threats, seductions. Salvation? Escape? No Exit.
Jean-Paul Sartre’s classic play of Existential angst opens the new partnership between South of Broadway and Flowertown Players: “Next Stage.” You won’t want to miss this unique opportunity to witness this classic piece of theatre. For two weeks the show will be performed in-the-round at South of Broadway’s intimate 99-seat house. The action will literally be close enough to touch.
After closing at South of Broadway on Aug. 31, the cast and crew will then turn around and open it four days later at Flowertown Players classic proscenium 199-seat theater.
As Theatre Charleston Award Nominee for Outstanding Director, Mark Gorman helms this four person tour de force, starring Flowertown Players Artistic Director JC Conway, South of Broadway Equity Actor Kristen Kos, and local talents Haydn Haring and Julie Hammond.
The play will be presented at South of Broadway Theatre Company on Aug. 22, 23, 24 and 26 at 8 p.m., Aug. 29, 30 and 31 at 8 p.m. and Aug. 25 at 3 p.m. It will be shown at The Flowertown Players on Sept. 5, 6 and 7 at 8 p.m., Sept. 12, 13 and 14 at 8 p.m. and Sept. 8 and 15 at 3 p.m.
Introducing the premiere season of “Next Stage,” a truly unique and innovative theatre experience produced by Flowertown and their New York trained neighbors at South of Broadway Theatre Company. The Next Stage joint production raises the bar by blending both companies’ best attributes, setting a new precedent in LowCountry theatrical collaboration.
