Studio X-hibition New Play Development

Developing and creating new fierce, gritty theater. For our future. And Yours.
In 1996, Theatre Exile began with a production of a locally written world premiere on a small second floor theater on South Street. That commitment to new work has continued and Exile has produced 11 world premieres including the Philly Originals New Work Festival. In January of 2009 Theatre Exile created a new play development program, the Studio X-hibition Series, which is dedicated to cultivating the future of theater.

Studio X-hibition is focused not only on exporting the newest ideas from Philadelphia to the larger national theatrical community, but also of importing work that can impact the artists living and working in Philadelphia. The program has grown to include not only staged readings, but workshop development programs and writers' workshops, cultivating new, edgy and non-conformist theater. The series brings Philadelphia's own local writers, playwrights who are part of the national dialog and non-traditional theater makers together into one series that seeks to push the boundaries of theater, both in form and in content.
