“The Whale” by Samuel D. Hunter

February 9, 2015 @ 8:00 pm - March 1, 2015 @ 10:00 pm

Theatre Exile presents the Philadelphia premiere of The Whale by Samuel D. Hunter from February 5 to March 1, 2015 at Theatre Exile’s Studio X, 1340 S. 13th Street (13th and Reed Street). This big-hearted but darkly comic story is about a 600-pound man’s last chance

for acceptance and redemption as he struggles to connect in the 21st century. Scott Greer, an Exile favorite that has teamed up with Pfeiffer in Exile’s North of the Boulevard and Shining City, plays the main character Charlie. Greer will be fitted with a specially designed costume by Costume Designer Alison Roberts. The final costume will take Greer at least an hour to put on for each performance, and is primed to be one of the most memorable images in recent times on a Philadelphia stage. Directed by Associate Artistic Director Matt Pfeiffer. Previews begin on Thursday, February 5, and opening  night is Wednesday, February 11 at 8:00pm. Tickets are on sale now for $10.00 to $40.00 at or by phone (215) 218-4022.
