Tuesday 5 June – Saturday 9 June Opening on tonight is the intense, clever and claustrophobic No Exit, a translation of Sartre’s 1944 play Huis Clos. It is the story of Garcin, Inez and Estelle who are about to discover why they have been brought inexplicably together in the confines of a small room … ‘a phenomenon of the modern theatre … it should be seen whether you like it or not’ – Stark Young (NY critic,1946) Tickets for this […]

Last Saturday the members rallied again and helped move all of SLT, including props, rostra, stage weights, flats, furniture, wardrobe, the box office and tech equipment back to the Old Fire Station in West Norwood.
