Live Garra Theatre connects Sartre’s ‘No Exit’ to present day - By Andrew Walker White
:"NO EXIT" by Jean-Paul Sartre, a one-act with three damned souls brought together to live out eternity in the same room -- dispirited by impoverished livelihoods and bolstered by material affluence; a place where misery loves company, somewhere over the inferno.
MISSION: Live Garra Theatre, Inc endeavors to employ the cultural arts as a way to address universal social-life issues; to illuminate all facets of a multicultural society; fostering cross-cultural understanding of the many ethnic voices in the community; reinforcing the value of diversity, strengthening the social connections among people. The word "garra" literally means claws -- to hold on and to ‘live Garra’ (Portuguese for prevail) means to go-the-distance and never give up.
As a resident company of the Theatre Consortium of Silver Spring, the organization operates out of the Silver Spring Black Box Theatre as a performance training studio; an incubator for a core repertory of skilled poets, playwrights, and artists, as well as providing a 'safe harbor' for the youth. Live Garra Theatre aspires to fill the void of culturally specific Theatre, preserving the unique legacy of the African-American heritage and contribute to the survival of Black Theatre.
