I've read Sartre's No Exit. A very insightful piece. I thank you for pointing it out.

I have since begun a different version of the play, without the group protagonist convention but still retaining the same characters. Let's see how it'll pan out.

Hey all,

So I'm working on one of those right now. I'm having a tough time and I'd appreciate if maybe someone could point me to some examples in famous literature. The thing is, the play's about a group of recently deceased sinners that somehow never made it to Hell. It relies a lot on characterization and internal conflict and there's no visible antagonist. I'm a little frustrated, not a lot. Would help if I could find any examples of this convention in modern playwriting. Thanks.
