From the acclaimed writer of Hit the Wall and Loom, comes the 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 the 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.
The production team for EXIT STRATEGY includes: John Holt (scenic design), Company Member Claire Sangster (lighting design), Delia Ridenour (costume design), Thomas Dixon (sound design), Mel Gill (props design), Jen Dorman (graphic design), Joshua Altman (dramaturgy), Ian Olsen (technical director), Ryan Bourque (fight choreography), Allison Raynes (production stage manager), Mikayla Pasquale (assistant stage manager), Company Member Elana Boulos (casting director), and Artistic Director AJ Ware (producer).
