“An Oak Tree” grows in Exile’s new home!
On today’s podcast, Deb Block met me outside the new “Exile Building” for an audible tour as Theatre Exile prepares to open “An Oak Tree” by Tim Crouch featuring Pearce Bunting and a slew of notable Phialdelphia Artists and special guests like Evan Jonigkeit, Zosia Mamet and Paul Giamatti. Stay Tuned!
ABOUT AN OAK TREE
An Oak Tree is a darkly comic and moving play about loss, the power of suggestion, and the magic of the mind. A parent loses a child, a stage hypnotist loses his mojo, nothing is what it is. It’s like they're in a play – but they don’t know the words. Theatre Exile favorite Pearce Bunting is joined by a new actor each night, who walks on stage having neither seen nor read a word of the play they’re in… until they’re in it. A breathtaking performance exploring a unique relationship - between a hypnotist and his subject, between one actor and another, and between an audience and the play itself.
