Opening night Friday, June 21st!


The teachers of Tumbldn High School don't live in an inspirational teacher movie. They bring mousetraps from home, they make the toilet paper last, and they show up for the kids nobody else shows up for. So when the school is slated for closure, and the weight of the inevitable bears down on the community, students and teachers alike discover their breaking points.


This crisp, current comedy follows the multi-faceted journeys of the teachers, vice-principal, and a savvy yet savage student in the days leading up to their high-school’s (inevitable?) closure. Exit Strategy is described by The Chicago Tribune as “at once poetic, political, sad, funny, timely, complex and compassionate.”

 

Experiencing Exit Strategy feels closer to watching a cable comedy than a stage play -- its dynamic, fast paced, and thought-provoking. It’s cerebral yet silly, a conversation can turn on a dime. The show’s charisma and heart flows seamlessly through its characters, their essences, and how they interact with both each other, and their own perspectives. 


Spiked with humor and brimming with fury, Exit Strategy is an exhilarating call to arms about what we owe each other.


Please be advised:

This show broaches the subject of suicide and contains coarse language, therefore it may not be suitable for children under the age of 14 or patrons sensitive to these elements. While there are no guns in the show, an offstage gunshot sound effect is used.
