Celebrate with Theatre Exile as we come
Back from Exile

We’re Back from Exile and having a Thank You party!
Come welcome Theatre Exile back home to our newly renovated theater at 1340 S. 13th Street!  We’re so excited to show off our beautiful space that everyone’s talking about and that which the Philadelphia Inquirer’s Inga Saffron said: “Quality craftsmanship never goes out of style.”

We want to mark this milestone in Theatre Exile’s 22 year history and thank you for allowing us to start our new future with such brightness. We truly wouldn’t be here without you.

Join us for the homecoming party on June 8th
4-7 PM
