    2017 - 2018 Season | Theatre Exile
    Jess is tanking in Physics, so her mom hires Lloyd to help her pass. But she'd rather study his son, the survivor of a lightning strike that killed his girlfriend a year ago, and tattooed his body with elegant scars. When Lloyd and Mom hit it off, these two broken families are bound ever closer, inexorably -- with explosive results.

Exile for 18 months, then back home to South Philly

And Theatre Exile’s temporary yurt, or theater, will be (at least for the 2017-2018 season) the Latvian Society of Philadelphia at 531 N. Seventh St., where EgoPo and other nimble outfits often perform.

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.

Phila Flea Markets added 4 new photos.

The Philly Flea Is Moving To A New Winter Indoor Venue Our Winter Indoor location at 9th & Spring Garden has been leased to a more permanent tenant and is no longer available to accommodate Flea Markets. We've been searching for quite some time and have finally found a beautiful "State Of The Art" facility along the Delaware River in South Phila just one block South of Washington Avenue on S. Columbus Blvd. This location is just 2 miles South of our former Spring Garden location. "Penns Landing Caterers" inside the Sheet Metal Workers Union Building at 1301 S. Columbus Blvd, Phila, PA 19147 (across the street from Ruby's Buffet and Pep Boys) This very modern location boasts high visibility along the very busy Columbus Blvd, is along 2 SEPTA Bus Routes, extremely close to the Columbus Blvd exit #20 of I-95 both North and Southbound, is minutes from both bridges and best of all has ample free parking for both shoppers and vendors. These are the dates that were still available after I received late word that our former location was no longer available: Sunday, December 17, 2017 Saturday, January 13, 2018 Sunday, January 21, 2018 Saturday, February 10, 2018 Saturday, March 17, 2018 (We Hope To Bring You More Dates Next Season) Market hours will still be 8AM til 4PM (But Early Birds Are Welcome) Vendors may still set up one day prior to the market date from Noon til 7PM or after 5AM on the market date.
