Community Cast Speculates on Show’s Direction

By , December 9, 2010

TV Guide has a theory about the show: That the characters in Community are real people who are slowly coming to the realization that they are trapped inside a TV sitcom, not dissimilar to the circumstances confronting the characters of the Jean Paul Sartre play No Exit.

Check out what the actors have to say about this theory:

Donald Glover (Troy): “Wow! That’s really cool! There’s so many things I love there — LostNo Exit reference, which is a play I did — that is great!”

Alison Brie (Annie) and Danny Pudi (Abed):

Pudi (Laughing): “I’ve been told things like that recently, like they’re all figments of Abed’s imagination.”

Brie: “Abed in a straight jacket.”

Gillian Jacobs (Britta): “I really like that. Did you ever watch that show, ‘Til Death? There was a plot line where one of the characters became convinced that he was in a sitcom, and it became even more meta than our show, if you can actually believe it.”
