“No Exit” is a one-act play written by the French existentialist and playwright Jean-Paul Sartre, who was also a novelist, screenwriter, literary critic and political activist. The play features three characters–Estelle, Garcin and Inez–who find themselves locked in a hotel room without any way to escape. After initially trying to be friendly with each other, they start to get on each others’ nerves. Gradually, they reveal how they came to be sent to the room where they are trapped and they plot their escape. The play is presented by the Tokyo International Players.

The Tokyo International Players (TIP) was founded in 1896. Its members have mainly been made up of talent from the Tokyo foreign community, but Japanese cast members and supporting staff have also played key roles.
The organization, 100% volunteer-run, provides quality English-language entertainment for international audiences. Over its long history, many active members have appeared in professional theatre in Japan and abroad.
TIP is always looking for new on-stage talent, directors, designers, and backstage crew, as well as people to support their various front-of-house, fundraising, and promotional activities. They consider enthusiasm, energy, and a fun-loving nature to be more important than experience.
