Interview with Rosanna Saracino and L.A. Lopes, Director and Co-Star respectively of ‘No Exit’

25 Jan

A fresh presence in the Toronto theatre scene, Art & Lies Productions, is having no trouble finding its niche or voice. Founded by a quartet of talented female artists (not that their gender matters), this company is embracing absurdist theatre with a vengeance. With one production already under their belt (Death by Woody Allen), they are back on stage with Jean Paul Sartre’s wry and well known treatise on misery, No Exit. Here are director Rosanna Saracino and co-star L.A. Lopes with their thoughts on the underlying profundity of absurdist theatre, why cramped black box theatres can be a blessing in disguise, and how Bugs Bunny and an Italian upbringing can provide endless inspiration.

No Exit runs until Feb 4th at the Passe Muraille Backspace. For tickets, head over here.
