September 26 - October 13

REGIONAL PREMIERE
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.

A stinging indictment of the state of public schools
— The New York Times
At once poetic, political, sad, funny, timely, complex and compassionate...Ike Holter has forged a riveting 90 minutes.
— Chicago Tribune
Immensely enjoyable… by turns energetic, optimistic, and bittersweet.
— Philadelphia Magazine
