A Chicago public high school slated for closure at the end of the year is the battleground in this taut play about the future of public education. Surprisingly, it’s a comedy. Ike Holter, winner of the 2017 Windham-Campbell Prize and a fierce new voice in American playwriting, introduces us to a small group of teachers who launch a heroic battle to save their school. Over the course of the year, they put their careers, their futures 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.
