Nonprofit theater company Theatre Exile is celebrating its 20th anniversary with a fundraiser party at Eastern State Penitentiary on Monday, May 22.

The evening, which begins at 7 p.m., will also honor founding artistic director Joe Canuso.

During the party, scenes from past shows will be on display. Theatre Exile is known for producing challenging, unique plays.

"Armed with our bare-knuckled acting style, bold designs and forceful direction, Exile attacks stories; digging deeper into our desires and psyches," states the theater's artistic statement.

Tickets for the party are $100 per person and include an open bar with a special Theatre Exile cocktail, heavy hors d'oeuvres and desserts. 

Attendees should dress in cocktail attire for the event.
