WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Hellvis (Or: The All-New No Exit, Now With Elvis) portrays Elvis in Hell, circa 1977. In a comedy along the lines of Jean-Paul Sartre's No Exit, Elvis is banished to an eternity of soul searching with a Studio 54 disco queen and a Gloria Steinham-esque lesbian. In 1940 Jean-Paul Sartre' was imprisoned by the Nazi party. NO EXIT, his existential portrayal of Hell, was the first play performed in Paris following its liberation. HELLVIS is a comic adaptation based on Sartre's Hell. The character of Big E, is a fictional interpretation of a modern pop icon and by no means a factual account of his life.

HELLVIS is directed by David Summers (So, I Killed A Few People) and written by Michael Pulliam (Radio Is Dead).
