Existential People

Delirium
1735 K St NW Washington

Inspired by HUIS CLOS (NO EXIT) by Jean-Paul Sartre, EXISTENTIAL PEOPLE (written and directed by Forrest Callaway) is the tale of three gay men (who also happen to be murderers and criminals) as they are led "over the River Styx" into Hades or Hell by the Charon, their guide who wears "black leather bondage drag". The men are then stripped of all their clothing and left to their own devices, questioning where the "torturer" is and why there aren't any burning pits, hot flames, or sulphur. Gradually and increasingly, they grow to despise one another. Ultimately in the end, the three men make the discovery that hell is indeed other people. And occasionally our own naked selves.
