    The teachers of Chicago’s Tumbldn High School don't live in some inspirational movie. When the school is slated for closure, Ricky, the vice principal, has a risky plan to stop the bulldozers in their tracks - but who is actually with him on it? Spiked with humor and brimming with fury, Ike Holter's EXIT STRATEGY, directed by Marcus Giamatti, pulls back the curtain on the educational system in an exhilarating call to arms about desires, needs, and what we are owed.

    Content Advisory: Exit Strategy features strong language and discussions of racism and suicide. The play also contains off-stage gun violence including a gun shot.

    COVID Policies: Masks and full vaccinations are encouraged at all performances, in accordance with regional, city-wide, and CDC guidelines. Because protocols may change, we recommend audiences be prepared for the possibility of mask mandates, and check Temple Theaters' website or social media for any changes before their performance.
