D-Pad | Theatre Philadelphia


The first production of Theatre Exile’s 2020/21 season, the world premiere of Jeremy Gable’s D-Pad, explores the world of independent gaming through the lens of a female developer. The show will be the first Theatre Exile production presented virtually, allowing both local and national audiences to enjoy the upcoming season.

Adapted by the playwright for an online production specifically for Theatre Exile and directed by Brey Ann Barrett, D-Pad creatively combines engaging individual performers with dynamic virtual design elements.

Written with humor, thoughtfulness and humanity, the production follows lead character, Alex, played by actor Ang Bey, as she finds herself in a nightmare of production delays, self-doubt, and a rabid fan base. During the course of the play, Alex slowly separates herself from family and cuts herself off from friends — a means of coping as she struggles to navigate the misogyny of gaming culture and finds herself in a state of isolation.
