Storyline

Three people, a man convicted of cowardice, a Lesbian and a self obsessed Blonde are put in a small, stark room with a few garish modern artworks and three benches. All have died and are in Hell, but instead of devils, fire, brimstone and physical torture, they spend eternity there with each other's loathsome company. Written by WesternOne

Trivia

Features a tracking shot which follows Estelle (Katherine Woodville) as she walks round and round the room. The technical daring and expert execution of this shot, thought to have been done by cameraman Jim Atkinson, has become legendary among BBC cameramen. See more »

Goofs

When Garcin is suggesting to everyone that they not speak with each other, there is a very high-angled shot, and in the upper left corner a boom microphone can be seen for a few seconds before being pulled back. See more »

No Exit
3 March 2012 | by (Boston, Ma) – See all my reviews

For those who don't know, this is actually a production of Jean-Paul Sartre's 'Huis Clos' or 'No Exit', though I have no idea where they came up with the title 'In Camera', unless it's some sort of 60's British euphemism unknown to me. The acting and direction are adequate without being especially memorable (though it is interesting to see Harold Pinter when he was much younger and was not yet a well-known playwright). Over all this is a decent production of the play and is available for viewing on youtube for free (in a generally commendable version not broken up into separate pieces). Recommended for any fan of 20th century playwriting, and not 'absurdist' like Beckett.
