Nomadically-Nominated “Exile’s” 2017-18 Season

Buffer

Before the mind-bending madness of Fringe Arts, I sat down with Deb Block to talk about the nomadic Theatre Exile and their 2017-18 season. Now, with offices in the company of 1812 and 11th Hour, we ran down the lineup while celebrating the 3 Barrymore Award nominations received last season. Exile will also play host to one of four plays presented in the region by playwright, Michael Hollinger, whom we hope to get some time with before the season ends. Exile will present at the Latvian Society this season and it will be a wonder how they use this space after getting so comfortable at home in Studio X. Stay Tuned!

Ninety minutes from now, a group of stressed-out corporate consultants is slated to present their work on a mysterious project. It’s time to brainstorm within the morally ambiguous parameters they’ve been given so they can make it to their kids’ soccer games and continue their ill-advised affairs. But as they work, the question of what they aren’t being told looms ever larger, becoming harder to ignore. If something truly monstrous is going on, it wouldn’t be happening over Starbucks scones… would it? A ferocious and hilarious thriller.

In the studio she once shared with Calvin, a photographer poses his mother for a portrait. Like many artists, she struggles to capture on film what she envisions in her mind. As the photo shoot progresses, the women grapple with their memories of the man who was once the center of their lives. In the age of selfies, Really examines the particular and diverse lenses through which we see ourselves, each other, and our place in the world.

Sing the Body Electric

BY MICHAEL HOLLINGER

April 19 – May 13

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. An intricate, atmospheric tale of love, sex, and the unseen forces that draw us together and drive us apart.
