Organization Description

Since 1997, Theatre Exile has mounted over 24 full-scale productions including 8 world premieres and 4 Philadelphia premieres. The materials chosen by Theatre Exile have been equally unique and challenging, ranging from classic revivals to premieres by local playwrights to environmentally staged ensemble created productions. In recent seasons, Theatre Exile has produced the world premieres of John Lumia's Amputation Nation and Bruce Graham's The Philly Fan, revived classics like Ionesco's Rhinoceros and Gombrowicz's Princess Ivona and staged modern pieces like DeLillo's Valparaiso and McDonagh's Lieutenant of Inishmore.

Theatre Exile is a non-profit theater company dedicated to enhancing the cultural experiences of all Philadelphians through the staging of works that engage the imagination. We produce risky and challenging plays that contain a sense of true Philadelphian grittiness and passion. We are constant striving to reach out to new theater audiences throughout the community by presenting both new works as well as establish plays that often are reinterpreted in original ways and/or held in unique site-specific locations. At the same time, we provide a safe and creative environment in which local artists can grow and experiment and ultimately, find their own voice.
