Casting & Submissions


No auditions scheduled at this time.


For Actors

Theatre Exile operates under a Small Professional Theatre agreement with Actors’ Equity Association, and in accordance with that agreement, we hold multiple open call auditions each season. We make a concerted effort to cast from a diverse pool of actors in the Philadelphia professional acting community. Most auditions are by appointment, but we attend the Greater Philadelphia Annual Auditions each April. Check back here for more information about upcoming open auditions.
If you are unable to attend one of these auditions and wish to be kept on file, you can send a headshot and resume to casting@theatreexile.org, or by mail to:

For Playwrights

Theatre Exile is a member of the National New Play Network, and is committed to developing and producing new work in Philadelphia. We are currently looking for competed plays for our mainstage season and works-in-progress for our Studio X-hibition series. We accept unsolicited script submissions exclusively from Philadelphia-based playwrights. When submitting, please consider Theatre Exile’s artistic aesthetic and mission. Also keep in mind that we rarely produce scripts with more than six actors, short plays intended to run less than 65 minutes, or musicals. Please submit:

  • A one-page cover letter including a brief description of your play, the production/development history, and how it fits into Theatre Exile’s mission
  • A brief bio and/or resume
  • A pdf copy of your play, including a cast breakdown

For work in development, also include:

  • A brief description of your development goals for the play

Submissions (and any further questions) can be addressed to our Literary Manager at submissions@theatreexile.org.
