Levels Teen Center presents the classic play ‘No Exit’
The Levels Teen Center presents Jean-Paul Sartre’s No Exit.  Publicity Art by Katie Wang.

Levels, the teen center in the Great Neck Library, will present Jean-Paul Sartre’s classic play No Exit on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, April 27, 28 and 29 at 8:00 p.m.

The show is open to the public, tickets are recommended to guarantee seating. Please visit Levels’ website at greatnecklibrary.org/levels-is beginning Monday, April 10 for links to register online for tickets.

The play is set in a perfectly ordinary room…in Hell.  Three dead people: the callous Cradeau (Ben Pitt Stoller), the manipulative Inez (Kajal Ramphul) and the vain Estelle (Charlotte Nerayoff) are escorted in by a sinister Bellboy (Kaj Lopez).

Trapped together, they question, challenge, insult, seduce, and attack one another, becoming un-living proof of Sartre’s famous quote, “Hell is other people.”

The show’s all-teen creative staff is led by director El Schader, who most recently helmed Levels’ productions of Little Women and Twisted: The Untold Story of a Royal Vizier.  Producer is Katie Wang.

Set design is by Finn Motta & Nina Zar, with costume design by Ava Hoffman and lighting design by Emily Hyman.  Makeup design and additional costuming are by Finn Motta.  This production uses Paul Bowles’ English adaptation of Sartre’s play.

Levels, the Library’s cultural center for teenagers established in 1974, presents several fully-staged theatrical productions a year, giving teens the opportunity to learn leadership and responsibility through the arts.  

Levels productions are directed, produced and performed by students seventh grade through college-age under the guidance of Levels’ staff of accomplished adult artists.
