PHILADELPHIA: Theatre Exile has announced its 2020-21 season, featuring three productions. The first two productions will be presented virtually and will be available nationally, while a decision on whether the third production can be held indoors or moved outside will happen at a later date.
The season will open with the world premiere of D-Pad (Nov. 27-Dec. 13), by Jeremy Gable, about the world of independent gaming as told through the lens of a developer as she creates something beyond entertainment. Interim associate artistic director Brey Ann Barrett will direct.
Next up will be Anna Moench’s Sin Eaters (Feb. 11-28, 2021). This play, directed by resident artist Matt Pfeiffer, follows an online “content moderator” charged with scrubbing social media feeds of disturbing imagery who finds a graphic video that makes her question her relationship, sanity, and capacity for violence.
The season will conclude with Pass Over (April 22-May 9, 2021), by Antoinette Nwandu, a take on Waiting for Godot in which two young Black men look to escape from their circumstances.
Theatre Exile, founded in 1997, focuses on theatre that explores the human condition and has a sense of the city’s grit and passion.
