NO EXIT    by  SARTRE

Garcin, Estelle and Inez never met in their entire life. Now that they're dead, they find each other in a pale room without any windows, mirrors or any other kind of distractions. They are in hell waiting for torture. But it seems as if there aren't any physical agonies. Instead they must face their own and each other's lives. No Exit offers a distillation of Sartre's existentialism in Inez's famous line: "You are - your life," she says, "and nothing else." The play ends with the characters' realisation - or, rather, confession - that they are indeed dead and trapped: "Dead! Dead! Dead!" Inez laughs. "So here we are, forever." Prior to this climatic moment, Sartre fashions a distinctive world view in which the actors along with the audience need to realise "Hell is - other people".

WEIRMAR CABERET & JOY DIVISION

Two plays connected by one character focusing on the lesser known true stories of Nazi Germany. In the first we meet see the relationship between well known Jewish song writer Frank Hollander and 'Putzi' Ernst Hanfstaengal, an American who helped finance Hitler's Nazi party. The first set in the cabaret club owned by Hollander takes you through the doors and to experience the music and the dancing girls of 1930's Germany including the songs of Hollander. We also learn about the lives of those dancing girls focusing on a young Polish girl, in Germany to make some money and her capture and use as a polish sex slave in the second of the two plays 'Joy Division' which was written in 2004 and has been seen at a number of UK theatres including in 2014, was selected for the RADA play festival. Set in a camp connected to one of the larger worker camps, we see the lives of Nazi sex slaves and see how some shared the same disgusting views on the Jews as their Nazi masters held.

The School for Scandal

Sheridan's The School for Scandal is a comedy of manners, a play satirizing the behaviour and customs of upper classes through witty dialogue and an intricate plot with comic situations that expose characters' shortcomings. Characters generally consist of stock types—such as the bore, the flirt, the gossip, the wastrel, the rich uncle, etc.—rather than individuals with unique qualities. Comedies of manners in Sheridan's time typically avoided the romantic sentimentality that characterized many other stage dramas of the eighteenth century. In The School for Scandal, the author mainly satirizes malicious gossip and hypocrisy in the fashionable society of London in the 1770s. The play was first performed in London on May 8, 1777, in Drury Lane Theatre.
