Knives in Hens is a bold and beautiful play. In a secluded village, a young couple’s love is challenged by an outsider, and the three are soon plunged into erotic love triangle. Theatre Exile invites you to enter an excruciatingly intimate world filled with mystery and poetry, and to watch as one young woman’s journey of self discover ruptures the very fabric of her own existence and jeopardizes all she holds dear. Knives in Hens will seduce you with its language and immerse you in a reality beyond our own, one that invites exploration and envelopes it’s audience in a total performance experience. Using a non-traditional relationship between audience and performance, Exile presents a new staging of Harrower’s work, one that will flood its audience in sensation.

The PSCA Zoning Committee meetings are opportunities for neighbors to hear the details of zoning applications within our civic association boundaries. The Zoning Committee does not make any final decisions on these zoning applications, but we do send letters to the Philadelphia Zoning Board Administration. Those letters outline the neighbors’ thoughts on the application and the Zoning Committee’s decision either to oppose or not oppose the proposal.

Please come and help make our neighborhood a better place.
