Genre: Drama
Written by Aleks Merilo, Directed by Mark Karafin


In celebration of its fourth season, Sanguine Theatre Company will produce EXIT 27, a new work by award-winning playwright, Aleks Merilo and directed by Mark Karafin. Based on a true story, EXIT 27 combines the themes of rejection, survival, and redemption in exploration of the human experience. As the overwhelming winner of Sanguineʼs highly competitive playwriting competition, EXIT 27 brings a stirring perspective of raw human nature in its NYC premiere.



Since the year 2000, the citizens of one town have abandoned nearly fourteen hundred boys in the Utah Desert. Deemed the “Lost Boys of Utah”, EXIT 27 is based on their true stories. Merilo’s play follows the journey of four of these “lost boys" to the edge of the desert. Exiled by their families from the only world they've known, the boys are forced to rebuild their lives as outsiders. Their only hope for survival? Each other.



Sanguine provides new experiences for its audiences is by producing unique, unheard stories. The theatre company’s annual Project Playwright competition encourages emerging artists to submit their new work. After highly selective rounds of preliminary judging, audiences at the annual event choose which finalists’ play will be produced in Sanguine’s upcoming season. This year EXIT 27 won the hearts of both the theatre’s audiences and Sanguine’s artistic team.


 EXIT 27 will run November 7-17, 2013 at the Medicine Show Theatre on West 52nd Street between 11th and 12th avenues. Performances are November 7-9 at 8pm, November 13-16 at 8pm, and November 10 and 17 at 3pm. For more information about the show, visit www.sanguinenyc.com, or call: (281) 946-9563.
