Health and Safety Guidelines

By Ike Holter
Directed by Malkia Stampley 

Five Chicago Public School teachers, their frazzled vice principal, and a defiant but motivated student take on a failing school system in Ike Holter’s sensational play, Exit Strategy. Fierce, funny, and charged with anger, the sharply written play follows the motley crew as they band together to save the demolition of their school and regain the optimism and courage they thought they’d lost forever.

“A call to arms… Beautifully dangerous, deeply felt in each shocking discovery…Exit Strategy challenges and inspires, questioning what’s worth fighting for and how to lead that fight.”
