Thorn's first dramatic production, a staging of Jean-Paul Sartre's 'Huis Clos', will mark the last event of THORNFEST.
Set in a Sartrian "Hell", 'Huis Clos' explores themes of selfhood, freedom and fraught human relationships. Its three main characters, Garcin, Inez and Estelle, each have a desperate dependency on others. It is this futile quest for self-validation which guides their interactions towards Sartre’s nightmarish conclusion: ‘Hell is other people’.
Look out here for photos and interviews as we document the progress of the 'Huis Clos' cast and production team.
