EXIT STRATEGY

EXIT STRATEGY

OCTOBER 10 - 27, 2018

by IKE HOLTER
Director - MATT HUNE

THEATRE
From the award-winning writer of last season's SENDER, comes the no-holds-barred story of a Chicago public high school slated for closure at the end of the school year. The looming shut-down causes tensions in the school's already volcanic neighborhood to rise to the breaking point, but a small group of teachers launch a last minute battle to save their school. Over the course of the year, they put their careers, their futures, and their safety in the hands of a fast-talking administrator who comes on strong, but might actually have no clue what he's doing. This critically acclaimed play takes on the very topical issue of the rightful role of public schools vs charter schools.

★★★★ At once poetic, political, sad, funny, timely, complex and compassionate, Ike Holter’s thrilling, beautiful new play “Exit Strategy” is the story of the desperate final days of a condemned, crumbling Chicago public school... Ike Holter has forged a riveting 90 minutes
