Emergency Exit

Emergency Exit

"Emergency Exit", by Manlio Santanelli, is a play written originally in Italian.


The action of "Emergency Exit", a two-act play by Manlio Santanelli, takes place in a place where there should be no action. Two squatters in an abandoned house in Naples wage psychological war on one another as the house, shaken by earthquakes, teeters on the brink of collapse.


"Extraordinary, intended for audiences who hunger for the rare and the beautiful." –Eugène Ionesco
