BAR HARBOR — In the latest theater offering from College of the Atlantic, three individuals of questionable morals get ushered into a small room and are rather baffled. They become even more confused when it dawns on them that this is their hell – to be stuck with each other for eternity. It’s a staging of Jean-Paul Sartre’s existential play “No Exit” on Thursday through Saturday, May 24 to 26 nightly at 7:30 p.m.
The moral of story, says Bo Dennis, one of the performers, “is that hell is other people and we’re all torturing each other.” The performers, who include Jabu Mickle-Molefe, Georgia Zildjian and Zabet NeuCollins, have chosen to create the play as a collaborative, without a director. Arwyn Sherman joins them as stage manager. While the characters they play are recognizing the torture of being around other humans, the actors are gaining great strength, creativity, and support from their connection to each other, a COA spokesman said.
“No Exit” will be performed Thursday, Friday and Saturday, May 24 to 26 in Turrets. Because there is limited seating, reservations are necessary. E-mail Bo Dennis at
