The Plays:   BETWEEN TWO CAVES By Brendan Bourque-Sheil Directed by Benito Vasquez   A comedy about modern conspiracy theory culture.  Alex is the content creator and host of a successful self-produced podcast, and she is currently adjusting from being a poor nobody to being someone with a little bit of money, celebrity, and influence. Despite her growing success, ratings are still precarious. Parker, a friend of Alex, would like to be some kind of high-profile celebrity investigative journalist, maybe the next Julian Assange, but as of right now, he's living with his mom.  At this very moment of podcast uncertainty, Parker visits with a story he feels will send him and her show into the national spotlight. His controversial proposal puts Alex in an uncomfortable dilemma. Does she satisfy her need for edgy content or pull back to save her slipping audience base?   THE VISIT By Esme Wu Directed by Sophia Watt   An intense drama about family treasures.  It’s been six months since Sharona died.  Her husband Scott is at home waiting for the visit of Suze, Ro’s sister, who is coming to collect some of her sister’s belongings. The two have personalities and points of view at polar opposites, and are prone to clashing on ideas.  When a valuable necklace passed down from their grandmother is missing from her sister’s possessions, tempers flare, and through the conflict the importance of the true jewels of the family are uncovered.

EXIT STRATEGY by Ike Holter


REGIONAL PREMIERE 
From the award-winning writer of last season's SENDER, comes the no-holds-barred story of a Chicago public high school slated for closure at the end of the school year. The looming shut-down causes tensions in the school's already volcanic neighborhood to rise to the breaking point, but a small group of teachers launch a last minute 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. This critically acclaimed play takes on the very topical issue of the rightful role of public schools vs charter schools.
