HCC Actors Guild in No Exit, Feb. 7, 8, 14, 15 & 16
HCC Actors Guild presents No Exit at 8 p.m. Feb. 7, 8, 14 & 15 and at 3 p.m. on Feb. 16 in the Blackbox Theater in Harford Community College’s Joppa Hall. Two women and one man are locked up together for eternity in one hideous room in Hell. The irony of Hell is that its torture is not of the rack and fire, but of the burning humiliation of each soul as it is stripped of its pretenses by the cruel curiosity of the damned. Tickets are $12 and $8 for students. 443-412-2211 or Tickets.harford.edu
