Read about the future of Theatre Exile and our plans for a new space on 13th and Reed!

Quick, creative thinking saved the day. If all papers get signed, as Block expected them to by Friday, July 28, Theatre Exile will be in exile only 18 months or so and can then move back to its digs at 1340 S. 13th St.

Saying the lease gets signed, Theatre Exile moves to offices at Our Lady of Mount Carmel at 2319 S. Third. Rocky country, yes, but it’s also quite the South Philly fine-arts office park down there, with 1812 Productions, 11th Hour Theatre Company, and the Leah Stine Dance Company as cotenants.
