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.
