Ike Holter's EXIT STRATEGY Opens Tonight at Primary Stages

Primary Stages presents EXIT STRATEGY, a New York premiere by Ike Holter (Hit the Wall) and directed by Kip Fagan (Grand Concourse).

The limited engagement runs now through May 6, 2016 at Primary Stages at the Cherry Lane Theatre and features Michael Cullen, Aimé Donna Kelly, Rey Lucas, Deirdre Madigan, Christina Nieves, Brandon J. Pierce, and Ryan Spahn. Opening night is tonight, April 12at 8PM.

Exit Strategy is produced in association with Philadelphia Theater Company.

A fiery, riveting work about the chaotic final days of an urban public high school, Exit Strategy is a taut, edge-of-your-seat drama about the future of public education from a vital new voice in American playwriting. Named "Chicagoan of the Year in Theater" by the Chicago Tribune, Ike Holter brings his new play to Primary Stages for its New York Premiere after winning rave reviews for a thrice-extended sold-out run last summer.

Exit Strategy features scenic design by Andrew Boyce, costume design by Jessica Pabst, lighting design by Thom Weaver, sound design by Daniel Perelstein, with casting by Klapper Casting.

"Exit Strategy is a bold and provocative new play -- an intense emotional journey that captures the grit of inner city life and explores who really gets 'left behind' when schools fail," says Primary Stages Artistic Director Andrew Leynse. "Ike Holter is a compelling new voice in the American theater that demands to be heard."
