Toronto Star

“Do yourself a favour and take a trip to hell. Please. At least the hell that Nightwood Theatre’s imported from Vancouver.”
NOW Magazine

“If you want a revolutionary cinema-meets-theatre experience, No Exit is the show for you.  If you want great performances by great actors, No Exit is for you.  If you want complex ideas that will force you to leave the theatre thinking, No Exit is for you… See it.  Tell people about it.  No Exit. Your brain will thank you.”
Mooney on Theatre

No simply stunning and is one of the must-see shows in Toronto this year.”

This existential masterpiece gets a 21st century treatment as a ‘live movie’ in this extraordinary, hybrid film and theatre theatre performance conceived and directed by the prolific Kim Collier – one of the most exciting Canadian directors of this generation in her Toronto debut. 

An exhilarating and radical bedlam of eternal damnation, critics are calling Collier’s No Exit, “Brilliant…The bravest theatrical ride I’ve been on this year.” Globe and Mail
