In Camera by Jean-Paul Sartre

In Camera skews the lens between realities in a brand new, sleek, and sexy translation from Jean-Paul Sartre’s original classic French text, Huis Clos, that proves itself more eerily relevant to today’s topsy-turvy world than it ever has before. This bold reimagining is set during the 2020 pandemic lockdown and explores connection, isolation, and the complexities of human relationships as the audience joins Estelle, Garcin, and Inez in hell during an online meeting no one can seem to leave…

Cutting-edge special effects created by Simon Fraser University’s prestigiously creative and experimental Centre for Digital Media and a fully diverse cast and crew will have you clinging to the edge of your seat as the characters maneuver their way around hell and another, more malevolent fourth character—the omnipresent and inescapable surreal online meeting platform that has become a global symbol for the real world pandemic lockdown.  The show—a marriage between film and theatre—will be sure to leave you laughing, crying, amazed and entertained by mind-bending debates long after the metaphorical curtain comes down.

One thing is for sure: this is Sartre’s masterpiece as you’ve never experienced it before – Realwheels has tried to capture his original classic as he might have written it in today’s virtual hall of mirrors/surreal world.

In Camera will be streaming soon on a computer near you and only for a limited time.  And because we’ve all been through a lot these past couple of years, Realwheels is making admission to this limited streaming run – complete with a myriad of accessibility options and exclusive dates and showtimes to accommodate differing needs and time zones – absolutely, completely free!
