Following it's successful first season, Exit Left Theatre Company seeks video submissions for the first play of their second summer season: the Michigan premiere of Michael Perlman's 'At The Table', directed by Rich Perez. Actors are asked to film a two minute comedic monologue and will be given specific sides if asked to see more.
Six friends head out of the city on their annual retreat for the weekend. With no social media, no cell phones, no internet allowed all, this leaves them with one thing to do... look up from their screens and talk to each other. And when the liquor starts flowing and the tongues start to loosen, no conversation is uneventful and no topic is off-limits. AT THE TABLE is a comedy that begs the question: what happens when those with privilege are pushed to the periphery and a marginalized minority suddenly finds its voice amplified? Who is allowed at what discussion table, and who isn't?

Founded by University of Michigan Musical Theatre student Jamie Colburn, Exit Left Theatre Company is a semi-professional theatre based in the lakeside community of Holland, Michigan, located two and a half hours east of Chicago. It is Exit Left's belief that the theatre is a perfect place to begin a dialogue, both on and off the stage. The company attempts to foster open discussions about topics challenging the community.
