Exit Strategy

Wisconsin Premiere

Directed by Marti Gobel

The no-holds-barred story of a Chicago public high school slated for closure at the end of the year. The impending 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 future 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.

“At once poetic, political, sad, funny, timely, complex and compassionate… a thrilling, beautiful new play.”
