Try Something New.

We’re Bringing Plays to You.

The Drake Theatre has been Philadelphia’s New Home for New Plays since January 2016. Its resident producing companies InterAct, Inis Nua Theatre Company, Azuka Theatre and Simpatico Theatre have brought 14 world premieres and 18 regional premieres to the city since The Drake Theatre’s doors opened.

Now we’re bringing new plays to your backyard.

Join us for 5 preview events from September 2018 to June 2019, located at community centers near SEPTA’s Broad Street and Market Frankford Lines.

  • Get to know each company face-to-face.

  • See exclusive sneak peeks at new plays just a train ride away.

  • Grab a Drake Card to Pay What You Decide the first time you see a show at each resident producing company this season.
