Wolf Play

By Hansol Jung

Directed by Deborah Block

Featuring Makoto Hirano as Wolf

October 27 – November 20, 2022

Opening Night: November 2, 2022

Theatre Exile, 1340 S. 13th Street, Philadelphia, PA 19147

Philadelphia Premiere!

A promising boxer is on the verge of a pro debut when their wife signs the adoption papers for a Korean boy. The boy’s original adoptive father was all set to hand him over to a new home… until he realizes that the boy would have no “dad.” Caught in the middle, the child launches himself in a lone wolf’s journey of finding a pack that he can call his own. 

What The New York Times called “thrilling…probing and playful”, Wolf Play is a messy, funny and disturbing theatrical experience about the families we choose and unchoose.

Abandon

By James Ijames

April 27 – May 21, 2023

Opening Night: May 3, 2023

Theatre Exile, 1340 S. 13th Street, Philadelphia, PA 19147

Luella is alone. She is haunted by the ghost of her son. Joshua is alone. He has been kicked out of his house by his brother. One winter night these two people collide into each other. Luella is looking for redemption; Joshua is looking for family. By the next morning, these two lonely souls are meshed together into an American Family in its truest sense. A world premiere by Pulitzer Prize winning playwright James Ijames, Abandon is sometimes violent, sometimes healing with a gossamer veil that separates the worlds of the living and the dead and shame and acceptance.
