Forward Theater Presents "Exit Strategy"
Ike Holter's "Exit Strategy" is 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 launches a last-minute battle to save the school. Over the course of the year, the teachers 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.
