And Three Other PlaysBook - 1989
Four seminal plays by one of the greatest philosophers of the twentieth century.

From the critics
SummaryAdd a Summary
Sartre has a knack for taking a thing and standing it on its head to fully and better appreciate it. NO EXIT is one such look at hell. THE FLIES re-hashes the Electra-Orestes story, DIRTY HANDS punches a hole through intellectualism, and THE RESPECTFUL PROSTITUTE examines racial prejudice. With Sartre, expect the unexpected.
