If you didn't go yesterday, you must go to one of the other showings of "No Exit." The Sartre play deals with many of the same topics we discussed with The Stranger, but it also brought some new ideas to think about. For Sartre, "existence precedes essence." We've all heard that by now at some point in class. But what does it really mean? I think he was saying that because we have the choice to define our own characteristics, we have to take responsibility for our actions. Without giving too much away about the play, the three main characters all struggle to deal with this thought while they're stuck in, let's just say, a very uncomfortable situation...
Go see "No Exit!"
