"Hell is other people." When Jean Paul Sartre coined that phrase in his play No Exit, he must have been anticipating Paris Hilton, Dr. Phil and everyone on American Idol. The play revolves around three characters trapped for eternity in a drawing room in hell, where they chatter on about war, the evil of mankind and God's lack of interest in the whole thing. Well, would you want to hang out with a big downer like Sartre if you were God? Existentialism? Whatever. The Classical Acting Company presents No Exit beginning 7:30 p.m. Thursday through April 2 in the Arena Theater, Fannin Hall at Richland College, 12800 Abrams Road. Tickets are $15 to $35. Call 214-505-1655 or visit theatermania.com.
