THANK YOU, TEACHERS!
Teachers come free to April 7 performance of EXIT STRATEGY,
a comedy about Chicago teachers heroically fighting school closure.
(APRIL 7, 2017, Maplewood, NJ) – Although teachers will receive discounts throughout the run of EXIT STRATEGY, they are being invited to attend the Friday, April 7 performance at no charge. Ike Holter’s edgy new comedy about the shutdown of a crumbling Chicago school uncovers all the humor in the teachers’ room gossip, conflicts, and chaos in the staff’s efforts to save the school.
There will be a discussion and coffee & cake reception immediately after the THANK YOU, TEACHERS performance. Called "Fierce and funny!" by The Philadelphia Inquirer, EXIT STRATEGY is sure to spark strong reactions. Executive producer Daaimah Talley says. “We would like people who care about these issues to see this play and have an opportunity to share their views.”
“The play was written in response to the sweeping 2009 school closures in Chicago,” says artistic director Mark Spina. “With all the current drama in Trenton and Washington about school funding, it might be a good idea to start talking about these issues NOW.”
The free tickets are available with school or NJEA ID cards at the box office beginning 7 PM, Friday, April 7 on a first come, first served basis pending availability; free tix may be reserved in advance with a $2 service charge at www.thetheaterproject.org.
