A Theatrical Exit Ramp on a Summer’s Evening

Exit 30 Theatre Performance

The Exit 30 finale in Baker lot

In the age of COVID-19, the theater must ask: how can we gather as an audience but still keep each other safe? Exit 30: A Pandemic Theater Detour gives you a sprawling, immersive answer to that impossible question.

On July 24, 25 and 26 a talented ensemble of Charlotte theater artists took over the evocative Davidson College campus with an intricate medley of pandemic performances, which wove together the joy, rage, humor, and justice that have defined the tumultuous summer of 2020.
