Rooke Theater at Mount Holyoke College (50 College Street, South Hadley MA)
The Department of Film Media Theater at Mount Holyoke College is delighted to announce our third season production, Ike Holter’s Exit Strategy. At once funny, angry, warm, and sad, this timely and poignant drama deals with an inner-city public school on the brink of extinction. The fictional Chicago-based Tumbldn High School is severely underfunded and undermined. The impending closure thrusts its vice principal, teachers, and a student into a battle to save their beloved institution. Will the bonds forged in this battle be enough to rescue their school from extinction?
“...Holter's beautifully written piece crackles with energy and passion - it hearkens back to those early British plays by Harold Brenton and David Hare in the way it combines issues and politics with emotion and personality.” - Stage Raw.
Directed by Michael Ofori, Exit Strategy runs from March 2-5, 2023.
