The skinny:   The play, by renowned French writer and philosopher Jean Paul Sartre, examines the afterlives of three souls damned to Hell to be punished, not by torture or eternal flame, but by each other. Trapped in a drawing room, with no mirrors and no exits, the boundaries of time, identity and existence dissolve and the characters are left with nothing but the mercy of each other’s gazes and the agony of their own minds. Never You Mind Productions portrayal of this piece illuminates Sartre’s idea that one’s thoughts create their experiences in life, and emphasizes his belief that our perceptions of other people are merely reflections of our own minds’ projections.Tickets: $30/$25 | Online at www.neveryoumindproductions.com
