2020-2021 Season

AT THEATRE EXILE, WE SELECT SCRIPTS THAT STIMULATE CONVERSATIONS THAT HELP GIVE FORM TO THE IDEAS WITHIN US AND OPEN DOORS TO NEW ONES.

And even though our love of gathering together in a theater is currently unsafe, we remain committed to engaging with you, our audiences.

Our essential goal is to use stories to help us understand our human journey better. This season, we will provide three. The first follows a woman who struggles with relationships and isolates herself in the world of gaming. In the second, the main character gets a much-needed job in the tech world but can’t connect with anyone as the stresses around her start to break her down. And the third takes us to a street corner with two men who are driven to find a new place in the world, only to be held back by the very world in which they want to enter.

Because we are unsure when we can gather safely inside, we carefully selected plays that can easily pivot to alternative storytelling. The first two plays are rooted in the virtual world and can be told that way. The final one can be taken outside. Three timely plays that use humor and powerful storytelling, brought to you safely.

Sincerely,

DEBORAH BLOCK

THEATRE EXILE  2020-2021 SEASON
 
D-Pad
By Jeremy Gable
Directed Brey Ann Barrett
November 27—December 13
Opening Night: December 2
All performances will be produced online.

TICKETS
   
D-Pad, which makes its world premiere at Theatre Exile,  explores the world of independent gaming through the lens of wunderkind developer Alex as she creates something beyond entertainment. Written with humor, thoughtfulness, and humanity, D-Pad follows Alex as she finds herself in a nightmare of production delays, self-doubt, and a rabid fan base. Interactions with real and virtual characters lead Alex into self-isolation as she struggles with family and in her male-dominated industry.

     
Sin Eaters
By Anna Moench
Directed by Matt Pfeiffer
February 11—28
Opening Night: February 17
All performances will be produced online.

Toeing the lines between satire and harsh reality, Sin Eaters is a hilarious, poignant, and brutal examination of the human experience and how the daily toil of life transforms our perceptions of ourselves and those around us. Mary is a “content moderator,” one of the unseen people who scrub our social media feeds of violent, sexual, and otherwise disturbing imagery. As she goes deeper into the recesses of the internet, she finds a graphic video that makes her question her relationship, her sanity, and her own capacity for violence.

Pass Over
By Antoinette Nwandu
Directed by Ozzie Jones
April 22—May 9
Opening Night: April 28
Venue: TBD

Moses and Kitch stand around on the corner – talking shit, passing the time, and hoping that maybe today will be different. As they dream of their promised land, a stranger wanders into their space with his own agenda and derails their plans. Award-winning playwright Antoinette Nwandu purposely crafts language that many deem “profane” into poetic and humorous riffs, exposing the enduring human spirit of young men stuck in a cycle looking for a way out. A provocative riff on Waiting for Godot, Pass Over is a timely tale told by a bold American voice.

Pass Over is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals on behalf of Samuel French, Inc.
